I have always said that there are no easy answers or explanations for
this tragedy. I think when a human being's moral walls are
destroyed, killing is just an instance's decision. (Although these two
young men had been allegedly planning this for a year, once they pulled
the trigger and saw how 'easy' it was in that one moment, all was
lost). How the walls were destroyed brick by brick is THE story.
Everyone can find a brick from the wall to analyze. But which one was
the final brick? Who knows. While most atracities are done to the
proverbial "them", these young men actually 'knew' their victims, and
yet, felt no remorse, or did they? We'll never know. Fortunately humans
are resilient. We, products of a Judeo-Christian society, forgive,
although we rarely forget.
