It seems like it would be a daunting task as a parent to explain a tragedy like the recent Paris attacks to your young child.

But this father finds the perfect way to explain to his son why they must stay in Paris and persevere. And he teaches us all something as well.

In an interview with Le Petit Journal, the son laments that his family must move because "bad guys" have guns.

"It's OK, they might have guns but we have flowers," the father calmly explains.

Obviously perplexed, the father explains that the flowers and candles being placed at memorials help everyone remember those lost. And in turn, creates a more peaceful world.

Earlier today, several cable news sources initially reported that the suspect behind today's school shooting in Connecticut was a 24-year-old man named Ryan Lanza, but the shooter has been since identified as Adam Lanza, the 20-year-old younger brother of Ryan who lives in Hoboken, NJ. Somewhat inevitably, the earlier news reports led to an outpour of angry messages and death threats on the Facebook profile page of the gunman's brother Ryan, who had to repeatedly explain that he had nothing to do with the incident.

Ray Dolin recently set out to hitchhike across the U.S. as research for a memoir called The Kindness of America. Naturally, he was shot -- partway through his adventure -- in a random drive-by, while waiting for a ride on the shoulder of a highway in Montana.

Dolin's now recovering, and authorities picked up his assailant four hours after the shooting.

"It's totally random," said local Sheriff Glen Meier. "These two gentlemen did not know each other. They'd never seen each other and we don't know of a motive. We don't know why this happened."

No word on whether the book will retain its title.
