Grief, Love, & Compassion
It's difficult for anyone to try to reconcile what happened in an elementary school in Connecticut on Friday. There isn't a parent alive who hasn't been affected by the horror of these shootings, but none more so than the families who now have to wake up each morning without their children.
As a parent of young children; a preschooler, and a second grader, I simply can't process this tragedy, and of course there are so many reasons, opinions, perspectives as to why, and what we should do about it. I don't know what the answers are, all I know is that my husband and I are now trying to make sense of what is becoming more and more, a frightening and unrecognizable world in which our children must grow up.
Like most of America, in fact the world, we are in a period of mourning and I am sending all my love, sympathy, and compassion to the families directly affected by this senseless tragedy.
And I call for reason, logic, and courage going forward.
