On the Connecticut Shooting

I want to write on it, but everything I try strikes me as trite and not up to the task.  And we just don’t know enough yet.  

Suffice to say I am in tears.  Twenty children.  Children.  My heart goes out to the parents who this morning said goodbye to their little ones for the last time, never knowing it would be so.  I weep as much for them as for the lives lost.  

Why children?  We will never know the answer, and we will never be satisfied with what we do learn.
