Today I re-entered school after hearing, watching in devastation the news about the massacre in Newton, Connecticut. I am in a state of bewilderment to say the least. My heart hurts so badly. Each time I think about it my eyes tear and I cry. I work with students in education and I cannot tell you the impact this has on me. I walked in the building today with state police outside waiting for the school buses to arrive. We are basically on lock down. My door is closed and locked, yet my heart still hurts.
I just don’t understand how anyone could take children’s lives. To all the families that lost their children, and teacher’s families that lost their loved ones trying to protect the children and to the children that lived through this nightmare I hope there is some comfort somewhere for you, although I can’t see how that could be.
