I don’t often reflect on this blog such personal reflections regarding public events. But again today, we witnessed a tragedy. Today as I worked to educate and protect the students at Walker-Grant Middle School, tonight I grieve with the families of the Boston Marathon tragic events. I was shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic event that was supposed to be a celebration of triumph. How do we as people come to grips with the on-going tragedies we face? I believe we must reflect on the life we have today, at this, moment. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
