This just in from the NY Times:
"The superintendent, Janet Robinson, said teachers and staff members who were caught up in the nation’s second-deadliest school shooting had managed to save students’ lives with “incredible acts of heroism.” She said one teacher had helped children escape through a window. Another shoved students into a room with a kiln and held them there until the danger had passed.
But it was not enough: First responders described a scene of carnage in the two classrooms where the children were killed, with no movement and no one left to save, everything perfectly still."
As the "next day" continues on for me, I can't help but think about how the whole nation is feeling and grieving.
The NY Times piece is a compelling read.
In a sense, this totally evil act against the beauty of childhood is a deeper, more profound attack against our nation because it could easily have been an attack against our babies and grand-babies.
In a sense it WAS an attack against our families and us.
