Silent until now, but not unaware.

Much has been said and written about the events of Friday December 14 that took place in Newtown, Connecticut. When not scrambling to prepare for Christmas or helping my daughter with homework and university applications, I have been glued to CNN. I have watched with shock, then horror and lately profound sadness. I haven’t wanted to comment, because the US is not my country and so many have already said so much.

But…

I am a neighbour,

I am a mother,

and

I am the daughter of two public school teachers.

Of all the things I have heard and seen, this resonated the most with me.
