It’s hard to even comprehend the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary. I can’t even begin to understand let alone find answers to why such innocent lives were taken at a moments notice.
I am not a mother. But I am a nanny, a cousin and an aunt. I love those children, and can’t even wrap my head around the idea that anyone would want to hurt them. I felt so empty after the Jessica Ridgeway murder, which happened only 2 blocks from where I was staying. It hit home- it made me hold my littles tighter. I never thought I would feel that hollowness again, until Sandy Hook.
I can’t begin to imagine how the families feel. Waking up the next morning to the world still turning- the birds chirping, the cars and the people and life still moving. And realizing that you’re child is not there anymore. Life will continue to go on and you are left without your baby, your world. I just can’t comprehend it, and it makes me sick to my stomach to think about how those families feel. I never will be able too.
All I can say is that my prayers and tears are to the families, victims and community of Sandy Hook. I wish there were answers to why these heartbreaking events occur.
Sending lots of love your way, CT.
