Today at lunch, Evan sent me a text telling me to stay safe at school. I was puzzled and responded that I am always safe. Never have I ever questioned my or my students' safety at school. No one should have to question that or wonder will I be safe at school today?
But to those wonderful families at Sandy Hook, that is now a reality. For the families that now will have one less person at Christmas or for the sweet little children that will forever have horrific images, sounds, and memories etched into their innocent minds.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the members of the Sandy Hook community as well as everyone affected in some way. Just goes to show that nothing can be taken for granted.
