I live in Connecticut. I was born and raised here and have been here all of my life, aside from four years in college near Boston.
It’s so heartbreaking when an unthinkable tragedy happens. When the nation turns it’s eyes to a tragedy that feels like it happened in your own backyard it’s even more surreal. I have driven through Newtown countless times over the years. I drove through Newtown just a few weeks ago when I went to meet up with Kate. My friends have family members and friends who survived and who were lost in the events at Sandy Hook.
Today I reflect on the innocent children and brave adults who were lost on Friday. And on the families who must find a way to go on without them.
