I don't have much to say today that will enlighten the national or global conversation of the Connecticut shooting. Nothing that hasn't already been said by countless other normal, not sociopathic people.
I cry every time I hear the latest update on this story. The news hits me more directly than other stories because the victims were just a year or two older than my daughter, and all the obituaries list personalities and likes that I can relate to as a mother.
Every parent can relate, I'm sure. KITV's Paul Drewes and I were talking about this after his Sunday morning show. "(Co-anchor) Jill (Kuramoto) kept crying during the shooting stories so I had to keep reading the scripts right after," he shared. Paul, Jill, and I all have kids around that age. I would also be crying on air, I'm sure.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH AMERICANS? WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? WHY ARE PEOPLE SO MEAN TO EACH OTHER?
Let's be nice to each other today. And every day.
With peace and love, Diane
