it’s impossible to move on, to completely leave behind all of the emotions, all of the tears and heartache regarding friday’s tragedy.
but, for this new mama, what’s making it easier to cope with the loss of these children, and the grief that we feel collectively as a nation, and as a band of mothers, is to read the words of mamas more seasoned than i am. so, i created a little round-up of posts, written by mamas in response to the newtown tragedy, in hopes that these words will help to comfort you, just as they have me.
