Life Goes On
Isn't it strange how life goes on no matter what? My girls jump on their trampoline. We cuddle our baby all evening. We make rhubarb juice from the garden. We try to learn how to bicycle. We have fishcakes for dinner. We feed the ducks at the lake.
But the sadness in the midst of it all.
Over 70 died. Most of them were teenagers, our finest ones. Young political activists, talented idealists and changemakers. Many from my region were killed, they were 18-19 years old. The older tried to protect the younger, and they didn't survive.
I hope we will recover. But we'll never forget them. And we'll keep loving eachother.
