Yesterday there was another tragic shooting, of WDBJ-TV journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward, that sickeningly took place on air at their news station. The response has been wide (especially in the media community) and moving, but also is all too familiar at this point.

After shootings like these, our human solidarity shines through the chaos and sadness.

But there is also an underlying, and growing, tiredness. It’s so frustrating, and heart-breaking, to continuously be in mourning over lost-too-soon lives. There has to be ways to help curb these constant tragedies.

I'm saddened by the shooting today in Virginia not just as a journalist, but as a human being against violence. #WeStandWithWDBJ
