Probably like you, I woke up and turned on the news, shocked to learn of the unfolding devastation out of Aurora. Throughout the day I listened to K-Love. Scott and Kelli had been in Denver all week and somehow over radio waves, knowing they were in the area broadcasting was a comforting thought. I saw the Tweets sharing Ann Curry was there, and would be reporting on the tragedy. I learned on Facebook a member of the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) family had a daughter that was wounded and required surgery. The people, families, law enforcement, and medical teams were on my mind and in my thoughts all day.
How do you process such grief and explain it? What words do you have for your children? What answers are there when people have questions, and they are legitimate ones that should receive a quality answer?
I don’t know. That’s probably why I paid attention to the radio, social media, and Ann Curry.
And from Facebook came an answer you may or may not agree with.
But I hope you read it and take her situation into consideration.
Because out of all of the outlets telling the story, she has the right to tell it.
