When my daughter Cristina heard of the 20 young children shot and killed in Connecticut, she did what I’m sure millions of parents throughout the world did. She ran over to her baby, picked her up into her arms, held her tight…and cried.
I can only begin to imagine the grief of parents who lost a young one in Friday’s tragedy. Whatever it is this world is, don’t ever try to sell me on the idea that it is a just one. It is not. In a just world, in a sane world, 6-year old children quietly sitting in their classrooms do not get killed by crazed young men brandishing semi-automatic assault weapons.
