The Blood of Lambs

I was living in Montreal when Marc Lapine shot and killed 14 female engineering students.

I remember how it was the next day.

Women were looking at each other.
Really looking.

Connecting without speaking.

We are still here.  Life will go on.

Today I haven't been able to stop looking at little kids.

And yes there is some comfort that the ones I see are still here
and life will go on,

but the slaughter of lambs yesterday

marked the end of the world as we knew it.

The Mayans were right.

Enhanced by ZemantaMy deepest sympathy goes out to the families, the community, and the American people.

It's hard to fathom what all those families and that community are going through right now.

My heart aches for all those families. Children. How can anyone shoot children? Yes, it's the end of the world as we knew it. The world is mourning.

Yet another terrible tragedy in America. There was a school massacre in China too but the guy used a knife so no kids actually died but some were badly injured.

It is absolutely heartbreaking. I keep thinking about the families, and the community as a whole.

It is just disgusting really. I haven;t had the courage to read anything about it ...

We can only hope this is the event that finally injects some sanity into the discussion about guns, although I am not optimistic.

I can't even begin to imagine how the families are feeling. To try and understand a person's mind and thoughts before they do something that horrific is confusing and scary.

I hope everyone eventually finds peace....
