Twenty Children Are Dead Today.

I know that many hundreds of thousands of children are dead today.  Dead from illness, disease, malnutrition, war, abuse, and accidents.

Specifically though, a young man walked into an elementary school in Connecticut today, armed to the teeth, and headed directly for the kindergardners.

I just can’t wrap my mind around it.

Meanwhile, Mike rants about “you Americans and your guns”, right wing radio jerks tell us it’s because God wouldn’t help a school that doesn’t allow prayer, and the tea partiers seem to think that if every Kindergarden Teacher Were Armed, well, our kids would be safe.

All I can think about right now are people being escorted home by police and family and grief counselors to empty cereal bowls in the sink, from this morning when life was normal and they fully expected (as one would) that your child will return home from school today, like every day, ready to tell you about their adventures over a snack.

I can’t wrap my brain around it.
