|Police arrive in front of the elementary school after the shooting.|
Words have escaped me for the past few days. After hearing about the tragedy on Friday, I've had a really hard time watching the news and being online in general. In fact, mostly all day Saturday I spent moping around the house unable to focus on anything. All I wanted to do was cry. I'm sure I am not the only one. I'm sure many of you have felt the same way.
Sitting here this morning, I need to vent and let it out.
I just don't understand people. My heart aches for those families. The fact that they will be thinking of this tragedy for many Christmas's to come. That parents have to explain to their little ones that they will never see their class mate again? Their teacher? Their principle? These lil ones have to deal with so much right now. And all the parents in America have to deal with a growing fear of sending their children out in public. Into places that are supposed to be a safe haven. How do you convince your children that it's safe to go back? How do you convince yourself?
Friday the 14th, was a day of hell for many. Not just in America. In China, I heard about 22 children being attacked by a guy with a knife at their school. This craziness is happening everywhere! Why are all the crazy's coming out of the wood work now? Could it be because the "end of the world" is this Friday? Which makes me wonder how much more we are going to see in the next few days. I am not trying to scare anyone, and am not hoping for anymore tragedies, but I am scared. All this "end of the world" talk has been giving me nightmares.
