Today I dropped my youngest daughter off to school and noticed the increased police presence. More precautions. More safety measures. I hated what the change meant: another school shooting somewhere in the nation. And this means another email from the superintendent. Another conversation about staying alert at school and reporting any suspicious activity. Another day where it feels both horrifying and somehow numbing to hear about a school shooting.
It’s heartbreaking to think of these precious families destroyed. I think of the 19 little children and two teachers now.
