At a loss for words

Today was another dark chapter in the history of humanity. My mind can barely comprehend the horrific massacre that took the lives of innocent children at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut today. Why? What kind of world are we living in? What kind of people do this? How can we heal? Too many questions, and not a single answer. My heart breaks for the parents who lost their little ones today. For anyone who lost a loved one in this beyond horrible tragedy.

When are we going to wake up? What is it going to take? When are gun-advocates going to stop hiding behind the 2nd amendment, and when can we admit that stricter gun laws are not taboo? When can we grasp the fact that the answer does not involve giving out more guns as a means for better protection? When can we provide proper care to those suffering from mental illnesses, and when can we wake up to a new day in a culture that does not breathe violence? And when will it be possible to detect the red flags so that tragedies like this won’t happen again? Will there ever be hope? Can we ever feel safe?

  3. Students in the school district returned to school today — except, of course, those who attend Sandy Hook Elementary, a school which will remain a crime scene indefinitely.
