I've been trying and trying to find something to say here. So many others have said things far more profound than I could hope to say.
In the wake of the hurricane, in the shadow of unspeakable horror, how I can find my voice?
Yes, we should all hug our loved ones, tell them that we love them, more so today than yesterday, or the day before. But I already do that. What else can I do in a world that makes no sense anymore?
I try to be the best mother I can - to shield them from the world and teach them to be the best people they can be. When will that be enough?
Hug them, every day.
Kiss them, every day.
Love them. Always
