The Newtown massacre of innocent young children has left our nation reeling—and searching for answers. Citizens look for those answers in gun control, the mental health care system, and in exposure to the violent images often found in video games and movies. Last year, after Jared Loughner’s rampage in Tucson, Iowa Alumni Magazine writers pursued a story about the rising number of college-aged students seeking help for mental health issues on college campuses. In that process, we hoped to shed light on an issue that is often misunderstood and a system in need of reform. Our thoughts are with those in Newtown today and with anyone struggling to make sense out of this unfathomable tragedy.
