The last few days have been hard. Too many tears shed for so much loss. First an old friend's 2 mth old grandson passed away. Then today's tragedy in Conn. I have a headache from all the tears I can't seem to make go away for any length of time. I don't think I can stand to listen to the news any more. I keep picturing my kindergartner in those classrooms. I can't even begin to imagine the parents' total devastation and loss; but I can imagine some of it, and I keep doing that over and over. Thinking of how they must hurt brings me to hurt for them. As a parent, such an atrocity as this drags my worst fear out from the depths of my mind where I try to suppress it; for even the brief thought of losing a child brings such grief that I have to immediately send my mind somewhere else. I thought that one of the children interviewed tonight had the perfect name for someone who could do this; he said that they had to hide from the animal in the school.
