Time to feel the magnitude of the tragedy

Newspaper headline: “Latest gun massacre in America leaves 20 children dead.”

Twenty children.

Murdered at school.

Twenty children.

Assassinated in their classrooms.

Twenty children.


Newspaper headline: “Today, President Obama will visit Newtown for an interfaith vigil, the fourth time he has traveled to an American city after a mass shooting.”

Weep over it.

Rage against it.

Do something about it.
