I can barely type this. After I read about the Connecticut Elementary School Shooting I just sat there staring at my computer screen. How can this be real?
Last I read over 27 people were killed, mostly children. As a mother this hit me really hard. I can’t stop holding my son and telling him I love him. Even more than I already do. An elementary school is one of those “sacred” places you wouldn’t imagine such a horror would take place. Dedicated teachers and innocent children’s lives were taken for no reason. No reason. School is where our children are supposed to be safe, nurture their minds, and grow as people. School isn’t supposed to be a place where we fear the worst.
What compelled someone to do this? How does a parent even try to explain what happened? I’m so sad and heartbroken.
We need to be sure to tell the ones we love how much we care. You never can predict the future. We need to treat everyday as our last and show love. I will pray for the victims, the children who had to witness what happened, and everyone affected.
