The news from Newtown Connecticut has stirred many emotions in me over the past several days. Because I have children, teach children, and love families this has been a difficult matter to comprehend. I avoided watching television, and honestly didn't want to talk about it for the first 24 hours. I suppose that would be denial.
Since I don't watch much television, I get most of my news via Twitter accounts that I follow. That may seem odd, but that allows me to choose what I read. We live in the informational (overload) age, so I decided to pass along a few of my favorite links concerning this horrific event.
