What happened today in Connecticut is a tragedy of epic proportions. I sit here with tears running down my face after having quickly glanced at the home page of boston.com. Photos of parents embracing their children after finding out they were alive, people in hysterics trying to figure out if their loved once survived this horrible horrible event. It is a nightmare.
It makes me wonder what kind of world we live in where something like this can even occur. I don't practice any religion, nor do I really believe that there is a God, and times like this I don't understand how anyone could really. How can something this horrendous happen? I usually follow the philosophy of "everything happens for a reason," but what the eff reason would something like this happen? Who would ever deserve something this horrible to happen to them?
I can't imagine what the parents of the innocent victims are feeling. Just reading about this all makes me overwhelmed with sadness. My heart breaks for everyone involved...
It makes me want to home school Marlo and Val, and never let them out of my sight...ever ever again. It makes me feel so unsafe. Today Marlo is home from school, but I think if she was at school when I found this out I would have rushed over there and taken her home immediately.
I just...I have no words.
Hug your kids and don't let them go.
