Newtown tragedy

Some of the news reports have focused on the need to improve public health so that those who suffer from various kinds of mental illness can receive better treatment.  I certainly agree on the importance of everyone, including those with mental illness, receiving high quality health care. But I would also note that it is important that we ask ourselves how we, as members of society, help construct disability through our response to those who we perceive as “different.”
