I’ll keep this short because it is unbearable.
Today I would like to take a moment to honor the families and victims of the unimaginable shooting in Connecticut this past Friday. I am disturbed and deeply saddened by such wanton destruction and callus disregard for innocent lives. How is it that one man can take this magic season of love and peace and transform it into a tragic season of hate and violence? What kind of blackly diseased mind not only concocts of such a deed but acts upon it? Blacksburg, Virginia. Fort Hood, Texas. Tucson, Arizona. Aurora, Colorado. And now Newtown, Connecticut. The list grows too long.
I cried tears of grief and shame. My thoughts and prayers are with all who have been touched by this madness.
