I haven’t written for a few days because, honestly, I haven’t known what to write. Like many people, the Connecticut school shooting has been on the forefront of my mind. What could I possibly write here on my little blog that hasn’t already been said more eloquently elsewhere?

I am just plain sad. My heart goes out to the families and community. What happened was beyond horrible. It has me thinking a lot about my own children, how I am raising them, and my personal views on violence in our society. My boys are still pretty young and don’t know about what happened, but we’ve been trying to have general conversations about kindness, violence, and real-life heroes.

Sending lots of love and hugs out to the Universe.
