Five years ago today at 9:10 A.M. I was in an examination room at my kidney doctor's office when the nurse came in and said "weren't you a teacher at Sandy Hook School?" When I replied yes, she said, "you've got to see this." I went into the waiting room where they have a TV and, well, the rest is history.
Like all things of this nature, it seems like yesterday that we were learning of this horrible tragedy. In the five years since that very bad day the Congress of the United States has done absolutely nothing to safeguard against future occurrences of this nature. More's the pity.
A moment of silence for 26 angels.
