A lot of this resonates with some of what I went through. The Fox Dr that wrote that article is spot on with much of what he is saying. The most important thing is that he be given support, love and acceptance. As to the trauma of the rescue, the police did what they needed to. As to the guy needing help, he certainly did right up to the point that he killed the bus driver and took a child. After that, he needed elimination for the good of the human race.
God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
