    I have a 5 year old daughter, who is the absolute light of my life. When she got off the bus today, I just picked her up and hugged her for-according to her-"two million minutes".

    I worked for a health center that served the Greater Danbury area-including Sandy Hook. Mostly in peds. Some of these children may have been my patients. I'm dreading the release of names.

    I had an hour long commute to that job, so for a while I was looking into buying a home in the area. Sandy Hook was one of the places I looked. It is such a peaceful little town, I just fell in love with it. I was disappointed that I couldn't find anything in my price range.

    But for the grace of god and high property values...my daughter could have been a kindergartener at that school this year.

    We must give this meaning...yes. What form that should take, I don't know...for now, I just can't stop crying.

      Wish it wasn't because of this.  I've been crying all day, thinking about my gorgeous grandchildren.  One 60 miles away and one 2,000.

      Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.

      was home from school sick today and I was relieved it was cough due to cold rather than getting a call from her school again for another LOCKDOWN.  Yes, this baby's school has been locked down for suspicious behavior from individuals on school property.   I am sick  of the reality of this nightmare.   I have hugged and hugged her all day.
