I feel hurt about the tragedy in Connecticut. So this is what I want to write:
I am not a mother. I cannot begin to understand the devastation that all parents must be going through. I may never know the terror that those children felt. I would love to understand these feelings and be able to express empathy, but I cannot. However, it is not because I do not care.
I care about each and every one of the 20 children who were lost. I care about the teachers and staff who died bravely saving many other children. I am sorry to the shooter's family for the loss of the mother and for the sad actions that the shooter felt he had to take. I am sorry to my friends in the Autism Community who have been unfairly declared by media as "violent". I wish the arguments about gun violence and Church in schools would go away. I wish that people could feel hope and love again. I wish that for once, I could really truly know each victim, who they were, and remember them for how they lived.
Not how they died.
