“What can we do?”
This is among the most common questions I get after a major incident of violence. It’s not uncommon for there to be a heightened interest for a while, then things go back to “normal.” However, things feel different this time.
As I’m writing this article, the news playing in the background is sharing details of yet another workplace shooting that occurred in rural Maryland. This can be added to the list of recent tragedies from Texas, Buffalo, San Diego, Iowa, and more.
According to the research group Gun Violence Archive, there have been over 250 mass shootings this year alone. This does not include lower levels of workplace violence such as assaults, bullying, sabotage, and vandalism.
