I was trying to figure out why I was so affected by hearing about the school shooting in Connecticut, other than the obvious. And I think it finally hit me. I could have been in that school. Back when I was applying for, and seriously considering, Teach for America, it was Connecticut that I would have ben moving to. And I would have been teaching elementary school.
And I think that’s why I felt like it was affecting me more.
Now, off to do other things. Thankful that I can do other things. I can promise there will be more on this later.
