    I decided I was too distraught to go into work today. As a mother and an almost six-time aunt of pre-K children. Going off to the campus where I work. And a close relative of mine was associated with this school for a long time as well. It wasn't happening for me today.

    When I was pregnant, I was on bed rest. Columbine happened right before I gave birth. I had TV and was watching and watching and watching. It left a deep wound. I've never understood what happened.

    Today, I'd gotten as far as the shower, couldn't stop tearing up, and decided to push my work back to Monday. I feel for your friend.

    I just feel.
