I cannot write about the tragedy in Connecticut.
Writing a blog about grief and as a bereaved parent, it might seem like a natural place to find such a blog, but it won't happen here.
I haven't watched the news or followed the story that has unfolded in Connecticut. I know the basics of what happened and that is difficult enough to reconcile. I cannot browse through the images of the parents or the children or the teachers that were so tragically affected. I do not know how to hold the pain of this story and it is not MY story.
I have no idea how these families feel.
I do not know their pain.
I do not understand their losses.
The only thing I do know is that their grief will be endured for a lifetime.
