I’ve been avoiding the media somewhat, but you can’t avoid what everyone’s talking about: the school shootings in Connecticut. I never knew I had connections there. Really, I wish I never had to find out.

A former classmate of mine lives there, but her boys go to the other elementary school.

My coworker is there, comforting his friends who are experiencing something that I cannot fathom.

I see them in my dreams and when I wake. I ache for them.
