Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting
End time insanity continues. Here in the US, it started on Tuesday December 11, with the Clackamas Town Center Shooting in Oregon and ended on Friday December 14, with the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting in Newtown, Ct. The shooting of 20 children is what really shook up the country and affected me more than I expected. There's lots on the news about the massacre, as innocent little children, happily looking forward to Christmas, went to school, never to return home.
I shared a tear with President Obama on Friday as he addressed the nation expressing great regret and emotion. I thought about my grandsons, Matthew and Noah, just 15 minutes away from Newtown, in Westport CT., knowing they were safe. I still cry when I watch the evolving story on TV.
Two days later ... I spent Sunday with Noah and Matthew, but we never discussed the shooting, something they earned about from their parents in the best way you can describe tragedy to children. For my family it was a day to buy gifts and sing songs, just what every child's life should be about. For families in neighboring Newtown this was a day to mourn.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims. This is not going to be the end of mass shootings even in schools.
