It was all the things these things are; tragic, upsetting, grating, frustrating, angering. The only thing it wasn't is shocking.
The worst thing is, I don't even have the energy to rail at the clusterfuck of events and circumstances that enabled this, the worst mass shooting in America to date. It's all been said before.
And the people that matter are refusing to listen.
So, today, I'm just going to take the day. I'm going to sit in my grief and anger and frustration. Tomorrow, if I'm feeling up for it, I might try to get back to normal.
Not today, though.
I just wanted to say, in case I don't get another chance to, I really appreciate you. Yes, you. Even you, there in the back. You have made this blog something I look forward to, and you have made my writing journey a thousand times easier. I wouldn't still be doing this if it weren't for you.
So thank you.
Now go hug your loved ones close.
