Commentary: Newtown School Shooting

Yesterday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut is yet another tragedy we are forced to witness.

As in the aftermath of the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, I find the search for motives and narratives almost pointless, and Monty Jones' "What Happened" resonates all the more powerfully.

I don't want to understand someone who killed children. I weep for the lives lost and empathize as a teacher and thank goodness for every breath, every second I get to spend with friends and family. I tell them every day.

As always, if you're moved to write about this tragedy, I'm here to read.
