Where does one put another shooting?

I sit here now, sobered.  The sky this morning was pink.  Now it is gray.

My niece is twenty and is from Newtown, Ct.  She has been working tirelessly to point out the changes needed in gun laws.  Her family lost many friends in the Newtown/Sandy Hook shooting.  At one point, they had lived across the street from the shooter.

When I was in Newtown in October, I saw a playground built with money donated by those who wanted to show they cared.

The conversations I overheard were about how people were coping - not well.  The repercussions go on and on.

We all suffer with each bullet, each onslaught.

I know anyone reading this is for gun reform, so why do I type these words?  My fingers need to move as my heart pulses with some need to understand what I simply can't.  I'm not against hunting for food but this is not that.  What is this?  I don't even know.

What words might I place here?  Breathe in the pain.  Breathe out compassion.  Light peace within.
