It's been a week. A week since 26 beautiful lives were taken, since families have been changed forever, and since the innocence of children has been striped away.
A week ago the media, as well as almost every citizen, focused all of its attention and devotion to the tragedy and horror of the Sandy Hook shooting. Debates about gun violence began, relief programs started up, and a collective desire to end this continuing horror was at the forefront of all of our thoughts. But it seems that even in a week, we've drifted away, let go of the sadness, and have forgotten about those wonderful children and their mourning families.
As the days after this tragedy go by, let's all take a moment of silence for the losses of many families, and be extremely thankful for our own.
