Excerpt from article in Huffington Post:
Indian prime minister, Manmohan Sing, issued a message of condolence recognising the “emotions and energies” the incident had caused.
He said: “These are perfectly understandable reactions from a young India and an India that genuinely desires change.
“It would be a true homage to her memory if we are able to channel these emotions and energies into a constructive course of action.”
I agree with the Indian prime minister, that some positive change must come out of this horrific act. My only question, why do we have to wait till someone dies for change? Why do we have to wait for a horrific act of violence to act as catalyst for change? Why did 28 people have to die to change and/or enforce gun laws? Why do we need to be brought to the brink of catastrophe to demand change?
