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.

Sitting meditation is an act of civilisation. These days we are so busy, we don’t even have time to breathe. To take a moment to sit in stillness and cultivate peace, joy and compassion – that’s far more precious than money.
