Senseless…

Published December 15, 2012 - 2 Comments

I normally don’t have a problem getting a blog post started.  Once I have my topic, I’m usually good to go.  I’ve tried to start this one at least a half dozen times, and then delete it and start over.  What can I possibly say that hasn’t already been said 1000 times by people far more eloquent than me?

Yesterday was a day of horror for a great many people in the small community of Newtown, Connecticut… the ripple effect of that senseless tragedy is being felt around the globe.  So many unanswered questions.  So many needless deaths.  Children.  Teachers.  Why?

Like millions of parents last night I gave my kids an extra long hug when I saw them.  I debated whether to say anything.  How do you explain evil to innocent young minds in a way that will help them understand without instilling fear?

You find a way.
