It is extraordinarily difficult for me to see the abundant news reports on this terrible situation. I finally got it through my thick head that I should turn TV off and leave it off except to watch a totally unrelated program that I DVRed.
Driving here and there around Sandy Hook is also a painful experience because every once in a while I pass a house with a lone state trooper's vehicle sitting in the driveway and I know that's the home of a victim's family.
These are tough times for Newtown. For a long time the town will be defined by this horrible event. But for the rest of us life goes on so there's only one thing to do. Move forward.
Last night we saw Becky, Mike and the two girls. It's exactly what the doctor ordered. Tomorrow I'll spend the day with the youngest grand child and part of the afternoon with his brother. More tonic for a sad time.
