As a teacher and parent I am grieving for the families in Connecticut today. I took my students on a field trip today for a performance of dance by a high school. We were surrounded by Elementary students who also were attending. I sat choked up, crying, seeing the joy of these young innocent kids.
I have no answers. This has happened too often.
I remember Von Maur and the feelings of that day flood back. People I worked with and knew died at the hands of another crazy gunman.
It has to stop. We need change.
I hope our government can be strong enough to change gun control laws and that the people of this country can see the wisdom in more control of these deadly weapons.
I can't wait for school to be over and have my baby in my arms, so I can finally breathe.
