December 14, 2012–A date which will live in infamy

The unimaginable has happened. It is with a heavy heart and teared up eyes that I try to make sense of a tragedy that is unthinkable. To imagine that today a domestic act of terror in the killing of innocent children and school staff has occurred in the United States has rocked me to the core. To think that our one of our own citizens can wipe out a group of child and staff is beyond belief.

My thoughts are all over the place. I can and never will be able to make sense of a shooting of innocent students and staff at an elementary school.

As a father and as a person who made his living in public schools, I am especially grieved that this type of tragedy can occur in our country.

My prayers go out to those who will never  be able to hug a child again due to this act of insanity. Enough is enough. Something must be done and it must be done now. No excuses, no politics, no right, no left, no conservative, no liberal, no nothing.

I am hurt, I am emotionally scarred for ever. I don’t have a solution but I know this should never, ever happen in a “civilized” nation. May God be with those who have directly been impacted, which should be all of us. May God especially be with the direct survivors since those children will be scarred for all time. And finally may God be with our country as a whole. FDR once said, “a date which will live in infamy.”
