I wanted to write a blog entry regarding the Virginia Tech incident since I read about it online, but I have not had a clue as to where to begin, much less what to say.
My mother called me this morning and left the following voice mail, “Please call me back when you get off work; I just want to hear your voice. I can’t believe what’s happened in Virginia. I love you. Don’t forget to call me.” The first thought I had was of the families who have experienced the loss of a loved one– those families won’t hear ‘I love you’ anymore– no more holidays together — and no child/brother/sister/cousin to say Happy Birthday to or tease for growing another year older.
All of this truly breaks my heart.
