CNN, Fox News, Huffington Post, CNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC: Don't show the CT shooter. Show those who are spreading love.

When we first heard the news today, this is what came into our hearts:
"I don't want to know anything about this gunman. I do not want to see his face everywhere for the next week. I don't care about his motive. I don't want anyone to ever know his name. This is not a story. This is 18 babies who were shot in school and parents who will never see them again. I want to take all of the attention and energy that will be focused on this individual and turn it towards helping every child believe that the world doesn't have to be like this."

Please help us do this. Don't spread this fear further. Don't give those who would seek to replicate it a platform and notoriety to support their evil aims. Please spend the time telling the stories of those who are working every day to make the world a more loving place. Do it in the name of every child and adult who were lost today. We will support you.

Don't show the CT shooter. Show those who are spreading love.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The media has a responsibility and they are failing to measure up again by repeatedly talking about this shooter. Stop glorifying him and focus on the families! If you want to prevent more of these situations from happening, stop glorifying the perpetrators. It's time for the media to be accountable, too.

      Showing the shooters pictures, plans, diaries, etc, only encourages other potential shooters to carry out their plans, so that they too can be made infamous. Show me the victims, the families, the stories of hope, courage, unity...do not show me the shooter. I don't want to know his name or see his face.

      Making murderers more famous than regular people is part of the problem. Enough.

      The shooter doesn't deserve any attention. Feeding into his insanity and trying to make "sense" of something senseless only gives him the attention he was seeking and intincing others with his same mindset to commit such acts of violence against others.
