Yes, that seems to describe my feelings about this.
Hi. I felt I needed to do something, say something — only the emotion is so raw and it fluctuates between complete sadness and rage. The quote said what I am unable to.
Cheryl. Thank you.
Thank you for posting this beautiful poem…I was having trouble explaining my grief!
I think there are so many of us in that same position. This is a different kind of grief than many of us have ever experienced — and I wonder how much more grief we can handle? Be well.
Beautiful words, for a time that words are not enough. ~ Kat
Kat, it’s so true. My emotions and words race from sadness to anger to questions, and then loop back again. There is no top, and there is no bottom.
From the other side of the world we are in shock and despair for the young lives lost and for the entire community and country. Toni Morrison encapsulates this cry of deep deep sorrow felt by all…
Flavia, thank you for your words. I long for a day when the world can be united in joy. Just once.
A beautiful poem when it is just so hard to come up with any words to describe the horror and grief. I wanted to write something about it, but I just couldn’t because it was so incredibly beyond words. Dropping my kindergartener off at school on Monday was so very, very hard. I can’t even imagine what the families there in Newtown are going through. Thank you for your words.
Like you, I felt I needed to write something — and this quote seemed fitting. As more of the details have emerged, my own words are taking over as you’ll see in the next post. We’ll somehow get through this. I only hope that the issues are addressed. Be well.
