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.
