What have we learned?

September 21, 2016

I had to catch my breath.

Watching this trailer is not for the feint of heart. I don’t know how I could make it through the film. I want to find a way to see it right away. I want to hide in my home and not make it to the screening. I want to hold firm and hear the whole story, the previously untold and intimately personal parts. Once I learn more about the tragedy, I can’t unlearn it. I won’t be able to erase the stories and images from my head and heart. It often feels like more than I can take.

Huffington Post has the trailer for the new documentary, Newtown. It is instantly painful and heartbreaking. I am unable to post it here, so please, go watch it.

The stories are heartbreaking, but yet the people are so hopeful for the rest of the country. We should be so thankful to them.

What have we learned from the tragic event? It made the gun-control supporters more staunch, yet the pro-gun supporters aren’t convinced. It is them who should see this movie, but it is us who will line up for it, cry along with it and mourn once again for the families who lost so much and the community that continues to struggle.
