Such a tragedy!

My heart broke when I read about this tragedy in Denmark.

A grandfather smuggled a shotgun into Family Court and shot his grandson's father and lawyer. We don't know the circumstances of what led to this awful event - and probably never will - but it is such a tragedy that this little child has now lost his father and grandfather - both of whom probably loved him/her very much - both essential to a child's development.

It's time we banned lawyers from family matters and instead forced opposing parties (husband, wife, brothers, sisters, grandparents, uncles, aunts) to seek the assistance of a mediator.
