Our grief

Is there anything anyone can really say that touches the depth of grief a parent suffers over the loss of a child? I'm not sure there are words to express the profound sadness the parents, teachers, children and community members of Newton, Connecticut are feeling right now. As a mother and teacher, my heart is broken and with the victims of this unfathomable atrocity.

Out of touch with the media during the work day, I was sitting in a Friday afternoon department meeting when a colleague asked me if I had heard the news. Thankfully, I've heard this question sparingly in my life, but every time I have, it sends a shiver down my spine. I was in college during the Columbine shooting and somewhat insulated from the world at the time. Still a child myself, I had no way of looking at such tragedy in a manner that felt real. I simply couldn't grasp what others were going through.
