Making sense of the senseless

In the wake of the horrific mass killing in Toronto yesterday, journalists and writers are - like all of us - struggling to make sense of the senseless. People around the world reacted to the news of yesterday’s tragic events with shock, disbelief, horror. A sinking sense of "not again." The collective Canadian heart sank. "Not here."

At some level, our responses have to be because - whether we think about it consciously or not - we deeply value human life. We recognize the injustice when innocent life is snatched away.

A nation laments - Humboldt Broncos bus crash

A nation laments

Canada is a hockey nation. And so, when one branch of the hockey family suffers, we all grieve. Witness the outpouring of sympathy in the wake of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy. Witness the way Canadians have clung to the words of lament and prayer spoken by team chaplain, Sean Brandow. A video of Brandow’s extraordinary message--delivered at a vigil for the victims April 8--and a transcript of his words have both been published through mainstream media and shared again and again by ordinary people on their social accounts.
