Up until now, I couldn't even think about, much less talk about, this tragedy. I kept picturing my classrooms over the years, and the little faces I've seen, and I couldn't imagine something like that happening to such wonderful people. Or I'd look at Beck and Ashley, and think of the devastation I'd feel as a parent. I couldn't even comprehend it all. But now that time has passed, I think that it is so incredibly important to focus on honoring those whose lives were lost last Friday. There's so much more to be said about things like mental health care, gun safety, and the like, but the fact remains that the world lost 27 beautiful spirits last week.
