I’m staring at the computer screen wishing desperately that I had not opened the internet 30 minutes ago. I’ve hugged Ben like mad, gone upstairs to look at sleeping Molly, and called Ian to hear his voice.
I would love to be able to write something eloquent about violence, or gun control, or politics, or disenfranchisement, or anything that will sound like I have all the answers and this will never happen again just as long as we change/do/enact _______, but I’ve got nothing. So I’m going to say nothing.
Please join me and spend a moment in silent thought or prayer for the people of Newtown, CT.
And then please take another moment to think about how you can spread love and kindness today, and tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that one.
And then please, please, go out and do it. And then if you wish, come back here and tell us what you did so we can all do it to.
