Yesterday, I wrote about my desire to keep my youngest children (4 and 8) sheltered from last Friday's horrific events. I was very pleased when my son, who is in second grade, came home apparently still unaware of what happened in Connecticut. We will continue to take it one day at a time.
Unfortunately, it seems the politicization of what happened there is just heating up and getting more intense.
Still, it is not the time for such debates. It is a time to mourn, to pray, to reflect, and to love.
