Preventing the Sandy Hook Shooting

Neil Heslin, father of Sandy Hook victim, asks Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh: What could have prevented what happened that day?

What changes could we all make to help try to prevent suffering like that in people in the future?

From the Question & Answer Session at the Art of Suffering Retreat, held at Blue Cliff Monastery in Pine Bush, NY, in August of 2013.

It is not necessary to throw away your tradition or family. Keep everything and introduce mindfulness, peace, joy into it. Your friends will see the value of mindfulness through you–not through what you say, but through your being.
