I can’t stop thinking about Newtown. I keep bursting out in tears at random moments. I worry for the families who lost children. I know that kind of sadness.
I’ve buried a child of my own. There’s a reason people say no parent should ever have to do that. The loss is unfathomable. It was a year before I could even begin to function again. I slept more, ate less, and entertained thoughts of just ending everything.
My husband took the kids to school this morning. I couldn’t have borne it.
I’m extremely gladdened by all the support that I see Newtown families receiving. I wish them all a healthy recovery.
