Do we lack common sense?

Yesterday, Gun instructor Charles Vacca, 39, was standing next to a 9 year old girl outdoor shooting range in White Hills, Arizona, was killed.

What makes this bizzare is that he was shot and killed by a Uzi submachine gun operated by the 9 year old girl! Just 9 years!

This is not isolated. In 2008, an 8-year-old boy died after shooting himself in the head at a gun expo near Springfield, Massachusetts, when the Uzi kicked back.

Makes me ask a simple question “Why is a child allowed to use an automatic weapon?” Is this what we call civilization?

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
