Lessons in the Wake: Thoughts on the Sandy Hook Elementary School Tragedy
~:: Perspective Parenting ::~
Like many other parents I sat glued to the news yesterday crying, grieving and just wanting my children to be home after learning about the horrendous acts of violence at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
I felt like I needed more information, more insight, more understanding to piece how a human being could ever hit a point so desperately low that they could do what this young man did. I hesitate to even call him a “man” because my intense anger of his actions puts him in categories that a “man” could not fit in. Yet I know the only thing anger gives me, is anger in return.
