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.

What’s the point of walking meditation? Why do I practice sitting meditation? Because I like it. There’s no point doing these practices if you don’t enjoy them. It’s not hard labour. Every breath can bring us peace, joy and freedom.

— Thich Nhat Hanh
