I wish I had something poignant and comforting to say about today’s tragedy. I don’t.
There is no explanation, so I won’t search for one.
I will turn away from the dark, not indulging in the media frenzy or the useless hypothesizing about how the unimaginable can be prevented.
I will send my kids to school on Monday with the faith that they will be safe.
I will cling to the faith that a new, bright consciousness is awakening, despite tragedies that challenge the reasonableness of hopefulness, optimism, faith and joy.
Peace be with us, especially with the Newton families, school and community.
