Not Today

I could not prepare an ordinary post after what happened in my country yesterday. The grief and anger are too great. It feels unreal, twisted, but I don't think it will ever stop.

So I offer a lament, the saddest music I know. Just the first movement, 19.5 minutes, if you care to listen that long.

I share your sadness. I can't help but think, "NOW are we going to have a serious conversation about gun control in our country?" What does it take?

Thanks Rob, we here in Connecticut are just devastated as is the rest of the country and world. Beyond all comprehension.

Thank you for your thoughtful post. I had mine pre-loaded, and certainly would not have been in the mood to do a regular post last evening.

How many times must we endure this insanity before we wake up? Thank you for the post and the music B.

How many times indeed? It's something that the country has to address. Not down the line. Now.

All those children, the other lives that man took...

Damn him.

And that music is certainly fitting for the occasion.

We're supposed to be living in the best country in the world, so how can this continue to happen?

I'm sure deep down everyone knows what has to be done. I was talking to one of my American friends today and said I could never live in a country where it is everyone's right to own a gun, I just can't understand why..they agreed.

We live in a sick, broken world. I wonder if it will ever be healed.
