Like every other mother in the world, like every other parent, like every other human being....my heart is hurting right now. It literally hurts. When I think about the horrific events of yesterday, my heart hurts so badly that if I didn't know better I'd think I was having a heart attack. I have cried so many tears, but when I think I'm all cried out, suddenly I start crying again.
Much has been, and will be, written about the tragedy, and I don't have it in me to write much, or even anything new to add....but I will say this. Although I have always been a very grateful person, and have honestly cherished every moment with my children, this has shaken me to the core. This tragedy will make me a better mother, an even more present and appreciative person, and a kinder human being.
My heart is in Connecticut......
