Grateful and Mourning
I cannot shake what happened at Sandy Hook.
I tried to process it, to make some sense of it, to line up letters and words in an effort to understand it.
This defies understanding, it wrecks the heart. It assaults the soul, it lingers like an ugly shadow. I can’t help thinking maybe there is something wrong with me for feeling this so deeply. My children are safe and healthy, in fact my daughter turned 8 on Saturday.. . .
