It's one thing to politicize a tragedy that's left dozens of your constituents grieving. Unsavory as it is, it happens every campaign year on both sides of the aisle.

Overturning mistaken decisions is an occasional duty of the Supreme Court, whose noblest achievement was the protracted, piecemeal repudiation, with Brown v. Board of Education (1954) and subsequent decisions, of its 1896 ruling that segregated "separate but equal" public facilities were constitutional. This Monday, the court will hear oral arguments that probably will presage another overdue correction.

Like many people throughout Florida and across the nation, I have been praying for those that were murdered or injured in Parkland as well as for their families and the community. Our hearts are broken for them. The grief and sorrow being experienced by this community is no doubt crushing to their souls and we should continue to lift them up in prayer as they live in the aftermath of this tragedy. We should continue our prayers for the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School family and for the Parkland community. We must also come to grips with how this tragedy happened and what can be done to prevent it from happening again.

When everything was on the line in the 1940s, it was the United States of America that joined the fight and made the difference in defeating Nazi Germany. It was American initiative that led to the atomic bomb and ended the war in the Pacific, saving hundreds of thousands of American lives which likely would have been lost in an invasion of Japan.

It was a profoundly poignant image: Thirty to 40 teens huddled together in a small dark room, their downturned faces illuminated by cellphones as they learned about an active shooter prowling their school.

The shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland last Wednesday has inspired in its aftermath far more than a political outcry for a conversation on gun control.
