I have been trying to formulate something to say to shed a light on the shadow that has fallen across this land.
I kept waking last night, rolling the tragedy over in my mind, thinking of how we can make real change. And what kept coming back for me was one thought: parenting.
I sat down to write to you, but found this instead. And Pixie says it more eloquently than I could have. Please, please read this. It speaks the words I have in my soul.
Edited to add, I just stumbed upon this very important post. A second conversation that we need to have. Truly.
Also, for those whose children already know of what happened in Connecticut, Sparkle Stories is offering a free story to help children process. You can find it here.
Pray, light your candle, and find hope.
