The big, bad, Connecticut shooting is lingering on the lips of society's mouth.
Newspapers plastered with the same eleven pictures are being bought by the thousands
and Facebook, my God, you can't scroll down more than a post without finding someone
sending their prayers out to all the grieving families. The horrifying truth of all
this is that there was a being disgusting enough to shoot children. Nobody should
have to fear being shot to death, especially not five year olds. I think I speak for
most all of us when I say we feel pretty much the same about this. It's giving us a
sort of disturbing unity in the thought that a.) this is a morbidly traumatizing
occurrence and b.) we can't ever let this happen again. In all reality, as hard as we
try, this could and will happen again and we'll revert back to the comfort of knowing
that an entire country feels the same as you, an individual. As for my coping, I'm
just trying to remember that the ratio of hugs per gunshot wounds is very high.
