Words Aren’t Enough

My heart hurts tonight. I am laying in bed, wanting to sleep and simultaneously wanting to refresh my Twitter feed watching for news.

I imagine being one of those 17 mothers or fathers, sending my child off to school in the morning then later that day… finding out as my child texts me, or calls me I fear. Maybe seeing it on the news myself, or a phone call from friends or family. Horrified.

When will something, anything, change? Isn’t trying something to prevent this type of tragedy from happening again better than doing nothing? It’s not too soon to talk about it – it’s too late.

I am sad for those kids, those parents, teachers family and friends. Why won’t anybody do anything? The reality is nowhere is safe. Not a school, or church, or movie theatre or airport or grocery store or concert. I am weary of reading these stories over and over and the repetitive, auto-responses over and over. Why, why, why? Can’t we do better?

    I wish there was one thing to do to stop all of this, and that we all knew what it was. It is so hard. All I kept thinking yesterday was “what can I do??” This is so incredibly heartbreaking and senseless. I will never understand how someone can have such disregard for human life. Ever. And to see after the fact that there were always (in most cases) signs that were just ignored is just angering.

    I wish I knew the answer. But I am hurting so bad for the families of the victims. And also for the 1000s of kids that have witnessed something they never should have. That will have lifelong effects from this tragedy, that will be too scared to go to school again, and quite possibly to go anywhere.

    My heart hurts.
