In Remembrance

I picked up my little girl from school today and as I'm driving home the radio announcer comes on and makes a simple heartbreaking statement; "27 people dead in a Connecticut elementary school, stay tuned for more details." I feel my heart sink lower than I've ever felt it before. I barely made it inside before I grasped my daughter in my arms and broke down crying. I couldn't help but think of all the parents that wouldn't be able to do so this evening. After delving into the story further, my emotions didn't know how to behave, sadness, anger, disgust, shock; how could anybody do such a thing? Than I realized it doesn't matter why because their is no justification; it was an evil act. I hope his suffering is eternal because he stole the future away. All the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of those children, taken. The impacts they could have made and lives they could have touched, no more. It's time for policy makers to stop saying guns are not the problem because well they may not be the only problem, THEY'RE A BIG FREAKING PART OF THE PROBLEM. As a nation, as a human being, we should not be okay with these horrific acts of violence continuing to happen. As for the families that lost loved ones, nothing can be said to fill that void; but you are not alone in your hurt. I hope some of you find your way to EP and share that burden of pain with the amazing community of support that exists here. We as a people need to change. Problems shouldn't cease to be serious issues once news stations stop covering them. Thanks for hearing me.
