A Penny for My Thoughts: It is so very hard to wrap my head around this...THIS.

It is so very hard to wrap my head around this. It can be simple, yet terribly complicated. This. Guns kill...people kill. Families survive...families break.

In my own backyard there are cries of anguish. The horror is palpable...people I know are falling to their knees in angst. Children, dear God,...the children... little ones.

And, what if...? What if it happened here or there? What if a man had been stopped...somehow? What if a teacher hadn't done this or that? And, what if we all had said, "Enough."

I'm putting one foot in front of the other. I'm praying and screaming and questioning and protesting. I'm listening and reasoning and watching. I'm hugging and holding tightly... grasping, grasping, grasping.

It is so very hard to wrap my head around this...THIS.
