Yeah, so, I can’t.
There are no words.
I just can’t talk/write/think about the shooting in Connecticut. I have been crying in my cube all morning. My coworkers hate me.
I used to work in a newsroom. I had really thick skin when it came to tragedies. Now, not so much. Now I’m the girl who cries in her cube. I’m so glad I don’t work in a newsroom anymore. I don’t think my heart could take it.
Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people?!
Children depend on us to protect them. We failed those children. I can’t stop thinking about how scared they must have been. My heart breaks for their families. What a fuckin’ nightmare.
I have an overwhelming need to leave work, pick up my son and never stop hugging him.
