Jennaisme, I keep flipping in and out on how I feel with this and I do really see where you're coming from, a couple of days ago or yesterday I posted something kinda similar because I just could not get past the horror these children endured, after reading a post about it I could only feel for them at that point.
But I also think, if we only see the children as the victims, then we as a society will fail to learn from this. Which means we will continue to fail those with mental illness and then in turn we fail those who are the victims of those with mental illness.
It takes a village to raise a child, we need to strengthen, tighten and ultimately embrace the notion of collective responsibility for the welfare of children in our communities.

I think for me to get to here I've had to realise that we can't neatly put blame on a person because we see them as the "perpetrator" of the horror. That something has broken in our systems and we need to fix that. If we don't then it becomes too easy to put blame on others and forget about it, rather than look deeply at what went wrong here and look for solutions at the root rather than a punitive measure when it's too late.
