We are once again faced with the horror of a mass school shooting.
Before my family moved to Maine, I went through grade school in Florida. The idea that a mass shooting would take place at any school, let alone one that I could have attended, is unconscionable. That could’ve been me. It could’ve been my friends shot to death for simply being at a place of learning. The one place you are supposed to feel safe. Since the shooting, I have been trying to find the right words to say. I can’t imagine what those at the school not only went through during it, but also in dealing with the emotional aftermath.
