Today I am still struggling to understand
I can't imagine
if and what my first grader's will be thinking, today
I have played out in my mind what they will ask, what they will know, what they will fear.
I am praying for words that will simply help wrap arms around them
as Newtown has embraced its community.
So that we can begin to feel closer to tomorrow
where we can begin to focus on the simple wonders of 6 year olds.
