I don’t know Veronique Pozner or Francine Wheeler. I never met Victoria Soto. And I wish I’d had the honor of meeting Dawn Hochsprung.
Sandy Hook CT is a long way from my little home in the mid-west, but in the hearts of so many of us, it’s just a community like ours that loves our children and cares about each other. It’s a place like my street, where we trust our neighbors and walk our dogs late at night because we feel safe. (Or is that just me?)
It was home to children (of Veronique and Francine) who trusted people to be good. It was where a small child, when faced with the fear of a live shooter, told their teacher that they would lead the way, saying “I know karate.” It was a place of heros (or sheros!) like Dawn and Victoria who gave their lives to protect the sweet innocent children.
We are all connected. We are a world of friends we’ve never met. We are a country of peaceful, caring, loving women. We are all related and we don’t get through life alone. We depend on others and now, in this time of sadness, we wish we’d made those friendships and wish we could do something to be a friend to the friends we’ve never met.

And, hug your kids. Tell your friends how much they mean to you. And be there for each other. You are loved girlfriend.
