You better believe I picked my son up from school early today and squeezed him with all my might.
Dec 14, 2012
If you know me, you know I'm not very good at eloquent speeches, but after hearing the news about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I needed somewhere to express my grief and heartbreak over the horrible tragedy. No parent should ever outlive their child. No child should ever feel afraid to go to school. No one should have to fear going to work. It saddens me to live in a world where sending my child to school worries me. It could happen anywhere at any time and while I know it's not healthy to live in fear, some days it's impossible NOT to feel fear. Days like today make me question my decision to have my child in public school. Days like today remind me to hug my kids a million times tighter, kiss them until they can't stand it and keep them close close close. My heart goes out to the families who now have to celebrate the holidays and all their days without their loved one.
