I found myself just driving around for an hour at lunch, crying, cursing, banging on my steering wheel, etc. I can tell that having a baby boy now has
amplified my empathy in this, and just about anything to do with children, bbut even so, this was so gut-wrenching...the children themselves, their
parents, siblings, etc.
When the time for real discussion about these issues comes up, I hope we (as a nation, and as an ATS community) can discuss all angles. I think we all
know it goes a lot deeper than either more guns, or less guns, and probably has a heck of a lot more to do with how we, as humans, relate to each
So let's grieve, pray, care, hug your kids, etc more than we did yesterday, and let's all try to step up our kindness and caring for everyone. The
actions of this guy are dispicable and inexcusable, but I think less people might be pushed to the brink if people were more aware, more caring, and
more willing to help the troubled souls out there. More love, less SSRIs, is probably a good start.
My words can begin to express, and my feelings can't begin to grasp the terror of those children, the pain their families (many of whom are sibling
children themselves) and others close to them are feeling. As gut-wrenching as this has been for me...I just hope they're all stronger than I think I
would be (and I am very strong-willed), because I don't think ai could pull through it with my soul intact.
