Like many, I’ve had a difficult time processing the horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut. My heart is heavy for the children, the families, the faculty, the first responders, and the community. As we all hugged our loved ones upon seeing a nightmare come true for too many, our minds raced to make sense of how something like this can happen in a national supposedly as civilized as the United States of America. And as debates about gun control and mental health access seem to divide us, I hold out hope that as a nation we will come together in solidarity and embrace Newtown, Connecticut as one of our own. I pray.
