Sad News

This post is also available in: Spanish

Two days ago there was another mass shooting here in America. Another one. This time most of the victims were kids. Kids my daughter’s age. I spent the lion’s share of the afternoon parked outside her school waiting for the final bell just to be near her and the life inside that building. I just heard from Isabel, who told me to go ahead and write a blog about Connecticut. She also asked me to mention the gun laws we have—or the lack of gun laws. Why are these guns so readily available? It’s all senseless and horrible and no one knows what to say, how to explain to your kids why their grammar school went on “lockdown.”

Here’s a quote that made me feel incrementally better:

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.”

–Fred Rogers

    Dear friends from the north west. Why so many guns without control? Simple. $$$$ it is a big business in USA. I am so sorry too!

    Hello Sarah,
    By way of introduction I’m a Californian literary geek and teacher who now lives in Spain with my Spanish husband. I’m so glad you’re writing. Its healing and helps us think in clearer ways. Here is the link to my blog as well. Hope you visit and keep writing!

    The beginning is scary in life, the end is sad, if you are in the middle place you have the opportunity to make wise use of the time you have….make it count.

    Well…what’s to expect in the US of A….where money rules and presidents…governors etc are to afraid to act against the weapon lobby ,because the thing that frightens them more is the loss of….votes..
    It is really sad this has happened…but unlike any other country,USA fails to react towards it…and just waits for the next retard grabbing a gun and going out on a killing spree…

    QUE TERRIBLE LO OCURRIDO CON TANTO NIÑO Y PERSONAS INOCENTES ,CREO QUE EEUU DEBERÍA REVISAR SU CONSTITUCIÓN QUE PERMITE QUE CUALQUIERA TENGA ARMAS. Y DEBERÍA PENSAR EN SU INCESANTE INTERVENCIÓN EN CUANTO CONFLICTO O GUERRA HAY. ELLOS MATAN SIN PIEDAD EN OTROS PAÍSES MIENTRAS EN SU TERRITORIO SE MATAN ENTRE ELLOS.

    we had a massive gun control law brought in years ago, let me just say that our country is much better of now due to that law being brought in. However it is not going to stop those who are mentally lost and are determined to take their lives and that of innocent souls. However it does make it harder for them.

    Sensibilidad hacia todos los niños del mundo…sean de Irak, de Africa, de USA, de Palestina, de Latinoamérica…..sin distinciones!!

    Los niños son ángeles terrenales que nos enseñan a ver la vida con dulzura, con inocencia, con capacidad de olvido en la ofensa y disposición para la risa compartida. El dolor en mi corazón fue tan fuerte al ver la noticia… que he mirado a mi hijo a los ojos, le he dicho nuevamente y como cada día “te quiero”, “eres la luz de mi vida” y acto seguido he clamado al cielo por su protección y el de todos los niños del planeta, Santos Inocentes de tanta barbarie e inmundicia social. Quiero seguir creyendo, aún después de una noticia tan terrorífica, que el mundo puede cambiar y ser mejor. Jhennifer P.O.
