Children Dying, People Crying...

Don't know if folks want a local spot to express themselves on the Newtown kids' & staff murders.

I got nothin' except numbness and a serious lowgrade anger. Feeling like a witness of domestic violence, which is not a good feeling to have.

It's now predictable - once/twice a week, every other month, more often than not, whatever. Good God, help us all.

I have a ten month old Daughter. When I got home on Friday I held her and hugged her like I never have before and she absolutely, without a doubt in the world, knew I was doing it for a reason.

Thank you for putting this out to everyone. Psalm 34:18 ?" The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. May we all send a ray of light from our hearts to all who are grieving in this moment. May they all be blessed with friends, family, and even strangers who are sensitive to their needs and help them gather the strength to go on. And may we serve to do the same for others.

tell the truth, witness is a luxury, i feel like an accessory to the murders. if i'm not part of the solution, i'm part of the problem. best call my congress critters tomorrow and make clear that killing kindergartners is not a sport in first world countries.
