I couldn’t let this day go by without acknowledging what has happened in Connecticut today. I was out and about doing errands today and never heard a news report until around 2:00 pm when I sat down and turned on the TV.
As a native Rhode Islander, this touched very close to home. I watched the TV in absolute horror. Then the tears started and wouldn’t stop. I immediately thought of our son at his elementary school and the tears became sobs.
I had to turn off the TV. I had a real problem that the news reporters were actually attempting to interview children. Have they no respect. They “reported” that the children appeared calm….correction…it’s actually called SHOCK!
I did see the President speak and you could tell he was speaking as a father. As a mother, I couldn’t wait to get my son home and just hug him a bit longer and tighter.
My heart is heavy for all the families and first responders. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
