where the writers are
A Sad Night in America

 

The paragraph about the nation’s grief over the events at Aurora, Colorado, somehow just got erased and I can’t retrieve it.  And I am too tired to try and write it over if I could.  One thing I said was that right now while we wait for the investigators and reporters to dig up the information we so desperately want, it may be better not to say anything.  So maybe it is best that my paragraph was lost.  It is natural for us to seek answers for something so terrible and unusual.  Despite the horrible evil that took place, there was even more bravery and goodness shown.  We are grateful for all the heroes among us and for all the officials who have done their work so well.  In many places on the globe, people have to live daily with carnage, and I hope this event in our homeland makes me more compassionate and prayerful for those who deal with tragedy every day.
