i have been so deeply and profoundly affected by the shooting at sandy hook elementary school, that i don’t know how to handle myself and my heart literally breaks when i hear that most of the victims were only around six years old. SIX YEARS OLD. it disgusts me and enrages me but most of all it tears my heart into little pieces.
once media outlets lose interest and move on to the next bad thing that happens in our world, people will move on too. those of us sitting behind computer screens, typing “rip” in our facebook statutes…and then moving on. but these families, these parents and brothers and sisters and best friends… they will never be able to move on- from the fact that their friend, brother, sister, their own child isn’t with them anymore because they were SHOT brutally- that’s something you NEVER move on from. i can’t even begin to imagine the pain the families of newtown are going through. and i wish i could do something, but… what can i do? it doesn’t bring them back.
it doesn’t bring them back.
i wish so desperately that i can do something- but all i can do is say…
to the families of newtown, connecticut, the families of the survivors, and the families of the victims,
I grieve with you. I mourn with you. i cry with you. even though we may be strangers miles and miles away, and my words may ring hollow, and i know won’t do anything real… i hope you know this. Your children will never be forgotten. Your brave and heroic teachers will never be forgotten.
rest in peace.
