I want to cry.
I cried at dinner Saturday night -- right in the middle of Boulevardier -- I cried for the children in Newtown, Connecticut.
When we heard the news on Friday at the Community Partners of Dallas' offices, my co-workers and I were devastated -- how could someone do this? Why would someone kill children? Innocent children? It is beyond comprehension. Twenty innocent children killed with not a care. We all mourn for them and for their families.
But did you know that 30 children were killed last year in Dallas?
Yes, right here 30 children were murdered or killed or died due to abuse or neglect by those who were supposed to love them. 30 Children dead! Why does this not outrage us in the same way as the tragedy in Connecticut?
Is it because the killer was unbalanced stranger instead of a parent?
I hope not.
When any child dies, it should shock us. Because when any child dies a part of our heart should die with them.
I don't want to cry anymore. Let's scream.
