Heavy hearted

I can't seem to shake the tragedy that happened on Friday and the sadness attached to it. This has weighed heavily on my mind all weekend. I've gone over it so many times, why? what was going through this persons mind? could it have been prevented? The fact this happened in a "good town" should make no difference, because the fact is this should not be expected anywhere, in any town. Ever.

The teachers.

The familes.

The children.

The innocent and beautiful children.

I'm so angry and frustrated with this whole situation and all the terrible events that have happened recently and could have been prevented. A school (or a mall, or a movie theater) is supposed to be a safe haven not somewhere people should fear for their lives. I'm not sure what is happening but the world is becoming a more frighting place with every growing second. I don't know what I can possibly do but with every fiber that I'm made of says "DO SOMETHING!" This is the time of the year to be with family, loved ones, a season of peace and goodwill towards men. I can't imagine imagine how the victims families are feeling, but it makes me sick to my stomach to even try to fathom such a loss.

To all the mothers, fathers, kids, whoever reads this, if there is one thing that you get from this is, count your blessings. Nothing in this life is guaranteed, so hug tightly who you love close and tell them how much they mean to you every single day and mean it.

(I'm not going to touch base on the topic of gun control, I have my opinion about it and I have stated before that this is a place where I choose to not discuss controversial matters. If you want to post a comment, please be respectful to me and everyone who may read this.)
