|If I didn't have them and their messes, I would have nothing.|
I can’t imagine what those mothers are going through today as they realize, through their unimaginable fog of grief, that it is Monday and their children should be going to school leaving behind unmade beds, piles of dirty clothes and every light on in the house.
As I walk around my house today turning off the lights, I will remember the children whose lights will never be left on again.
Let us never forget. Every time we turn off lights behind our children let’s not forget those children whose lights are off permanently. Let’s not forget those children that witnessed this horrible violence; those children who won’t let their mothers turn off the lights for dread of the dark.
Let us never be desensitized to this violence.
