When are we going to stop being shocked?

We are here again. Unspeakable evil rendered for no reason. Sure law enforcement is busy trying to find out who planted the bombs at the Boston marathon, and sure there is probably a political reason, but there is never a reason to justify killing and maiming people. Everytime something likes this happens we are shocked. We were shocked at 9/11, we were shocked at the shoe bomber, we were shocked at Columbine, we were shocked at Virginia tech and we were most recently shocked at Newtown. Each time the nation is shocked, saddened and then we mourn, but what do we do next? We move on with our lives until the next time we are shocked, but what can we do about any of this or any future attacks? How do we channel our anger and our grief? I don’t have the answer, but if any of you do feel free to post.
