Gregory Orr on Here & Now

Professor Gregory Orr spoke to Robin Young on Here and Now about living after an accidental shooting death. Orr reflects on the recent incident in which a 9-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her instructor at an Arizona firing range, as well as his own tragic experience: when he was 12 years old, he killed a younger brother in a hunting accident. Orr reads from his own poetry and discusses finding meaning after an incomprehensible tragedy.
