One of the very hardest sights in the wake of the horrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary is the survivors with their steady, young voices, who have said, with confusion “It was a regular Friday”
I can barely stand to watch these children describe how the regular was yanked out of their lives forever.
Regular is without excitement, without incident, it is beautiful and simple routine that we often can curse for its normalcy. When tragedy hits we realize that is what we crave, it is what comforts us and makes us feel secure.
To imagine that these little ones will no longer feel the comfort of a regular day, no longer know that safety that a regular day gives to us, is unbearable.
Whatever you do, do not see this as just a gun control issue (although that alone is a disaster), it is also clearly a mental health issue.
I am guessing the mentally ill have never had the comfort and peace of a regular day.
