I have struggled all day trying to figure out how to respond the events in Newtown, Connecticut today. I finally settled on this Facebook posting and thought I should share it here:

It seems irresponsible not to say something about the horror at Sandy Hook Elementary today and even more impossible to know what to say. 20 children dead and, as one of the teachers said, the others having now lost their childhood forever. It is unimaginable. This is a sad, violent, sick nation and I fear it is only going to get worse.
