I still don't feel like it is appropriate to complain about politics or joke about my family. While trying to go on about my daily life, I am still constantly struck by the magnitude of the school massacre in Connecticut.
I tried to finish up my Christmas shopping yesterday - only to be reminded of presents that are probably sitting under trees that will never be opened by those they were intended to delight. I thought of families that lost a child, but still need to carry on in some manner for the surviving children.
The photos that are now coming out have broken my heart all over again. The only thing that I know for certain in the midst of this horrifying tragedy is that we all share the grief that these families are feeling.
