In light of the Connecticut tragedy I am left at a bit of a loss as to where to take this post. I had several ideas over the weekend, but all of them have left me or seem pointless.
We can go around in circles arguing over gun control, mental health awareness, and so forth and so on. But the bottom line is this, 27 innocent people died last week. And yes, we need to do SOMETHING. But for now, I think we need to grieve. Without pointing fingers, without judgement or political agendas. We need to let time pass, let wounds begin to heal (which some will never), and we as a nation need to simply say, "We're here. And we're so sorry."
