I am so horrified by the killings yesterday in Newtown Connecticut. I raised my son in a time when the word pedophile was just coming into our American language and mass murders were unheard of. I never feared sending him off to school, it was a safe place. As a single working parent, school represented the other parent my son needed. Now all that is gone. As a grandmother of a beautiful little girl, how can I ever again believe she will be safe? How can any parent ever leave their child at school all day and not go insane with worry?
My heart goes out to the families in Newtown Connecticut.
