Still grappling with the violence at Shady Hook, a friend and I were commenting on the wave of goodwill and love that has erupted not only in Connecticut, but here in Massachusetts and more than likely around the world. It was reported that for 8 hours at a local drive through coffee/donut place people were paying for an order or two behind them. Leaving cash at the register to cover the bills of others.
And how generous and wonderful as this is, I'm left with the question, "Why did it take the senseless deaths of 28 people to bring about this outpouring?" Yes 28.
Let us not forget the tragedy, and as we move towards healing let us never forget the love and kindness that work so hard to heal the wounds. Evil happens in the blink of an eye. Coming out of no where.
Let's not say the say the same for love.
