Sweeping Grief

As a society we have a fundamental responsibility to protect our young. It isn't political. It isn't parent vs. non-parent. It is the basic proposition of keeping the defenseless safe.

Our system is broken, and kids have died. Are dying. May continue to die. It will take our collective willingness, our coming together despite political, social and economic differences, to fix our shared, incomprehensible reality that our children aren't safe at school. Or at the mall. Or at the movie theater.

Today, as I watched my kids' bus come home, I felt a mixture of horror and shameful gratitude.

Every bus, every child... they should always come home.

May those sweet souls rest in peace, and may their families find themselves surrounded in love and support from all of us.
