In response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting today


I’d like to say something about today, but I think writer’s may know best that words are rather useless in the face of tragedy. What happened was horrible. That’s really all there is to it.
And what makes it even more horrible is that there are aspects that likely could have been prevented.
I could talk about gun control, or maybe the shooter’s home life but… 
Let’s pick up our protest signs and petitions tomorrow. Today is the day we pay respect to what we've lost. To tell the people in your life you love them. Light a candle for those poor kids—both the ones who were taken and the ones who must deal with the trauma of living on.
Tomorrow? Tomorrow let’s do everything in our power to make sure this doesn't happen again.
