- My heart is so very heavy for those family members and friends of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy.
- I cannot imagine the horror of seeing child after child return to their parents and then realizing your child has not returned to you.
- There is no reason for any human being who is not a member of the military or law enforcement – and I’m not real sure about them – to own a high powered assault weapon. None. You can’t hunt with the damn things and a revolver or shot gun will allow you protect your family.
- I’m sick of people hollering about 2nd Amendment rights. Those babies had a right to return home. Those families had the right to hug their wives/mothers/sisters/daughters/aunts at the end of the day. People act like the people who wrote our Constitution and the Amendments were God. They’re not. Everything in those documents aint wonderful. Yes, I’m glad to be an American. But as a collective nation, we’re wrong about a lot of stuff. Often. This is one of them.
- Of course, I hugged LG a little tighter when I picked her up from school on Friday and I noticed that every parent around me did the same with their child(ren).
- I tried to keep the news away from LG. I’ve heard experts say we should discuss this type of thing with our children. Well, I just don’t want to explain the in-school massacre of 6 and 7 year old children to my 8 year old daughter. Because really? There’s no explanation for it.
- But she heard a bit of the news anyway and we talked about it. And my baby cried and prayed for those families. And that hurt my heart. And made me happy that she has a soft heart and sympathy for others.
- I didn’t even want to send my child to school today. But I did. Because life goes on. Maybe not the same as it was before terrible loss, but it keeps moving forward and we are compelled to move forward with it.
