I have had a really hard time trying to grasp Friday’s events at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
My cousin and best friend are teachers. My nephew and niece are in the same age range. It’s impossible for me to try to process what happened and I am not even directly effected. My heart aches for those families who lost a loved one. Like, what did a 6-year old child ever do to this shooter? No matter the motive, it will never turn out okay, it will never make sense, it will never hurt less for these families.
Reading about the victims and the teacher who died saving students makes me even sadder. I know there is nothing I can do to lessen the pain for these families, but I wish there was.
