I haven’t posted since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Honestly, I had no intention of writing a post related to it. I mean who am I to write about such a horrific event? I have no real connection to it. I didn’t know anyone there. I’m not mourning anyone personally. Yet, I feel like I can’t not write about it. Like so many of us, it’s something I can’t stop thinking about.
I’m not an emotional person. I didn’t cry at my own mother’s wake or funeral. It’s just not the kind of person I am. Yet, I found tears streaming down my face when I first read the news of the attack. When something so horrible and senseless happens to children, I just don’t know what words to say. What I do know is that I’ve snuck in extra kisses with my children this weekend. I’ve been more patient and I’ve been more kind.
As I’m hugging my children closely and planning our upcoming events for the week, it is not far from my mind that some parents are no longer able to make those kinds of plans with their little ones. I just can’t even imagine…
