I usually have a lot to say on Mondays - about my own writing, about my fellow writers and what they're up to, about the latest books and good reads and pages you should check out. But today, folks, I have no words, just a broken heart after last Friday's school shooting in Newtown, CT. And as I head in to work in a few minutes, I'm trying to decide what I will tell my students who are aspiring to be teachers themselves someday. I think I will start by saying that I have always thought that anyone who chooses education as a profession has a heroic nature.
Now I know that to be true.
Prayers to everyone struggling to deal with the aftermath of this terrible tragedy.
