Yesterday my heart split because
the most horrible happened.
It happened. It happened.
Its happening still.
Today and tomorrow my heart will break again.
because it happened . It happened.
Too much never will.
Grief is hard enough to process when we lose loved ones who have lived long, full lives. I don't know how to heal the kind of wounds that are left from losing children. I won't look away from it though. I won't look away from that pain. I will feel it too. That kind of pain will crush you if the people around you don't help you carry it.
Grief brings a dark gift, because it shakes us up enough to make change possible. I am shaken. It is time to grow.
In memory of every child lost to the AR 15.
