Grieving a child is barely survivable. I see it everyday.
As I am with people trying to survive the unimaginable, I spend a lot of time with them in the why. Sitting in the why is torture AND a necessary stop in grief.
Sitting in the why of yesterday needs to happen. I don’t believe there is a simple answer to why it was these 19 children who died, instead of my own child ….but THERE IS A WHY to sit in and be acknowledged for the fact that another massacre happened.
We are way beyond a “bad things happen” moment. That is no longer acceptable. That is no longer relevant.
These massacres happen here. In America. And no where else like this.
