NO ORDINARY MONDAY FOR ANYONE

Dec 17th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Seniors, like everyone else on this Monday morning, are touched by the tragedy over the last several days in Newtown, Connecticut. This is not one of those places terribly far away and isolated from the reality of our own existence. Elderly, grandparents, whatever label is attached to us applies to our deep sense of pain for those, our age and older, who have lost grandchildren and those first grade wonders that were taken at the hand of a very seriously disturbed young man.

His action held hostage those whose relationships ended in a flash. Teachers, administrators, first graders, all who had reason aplenty for that not to happen on this otherwise ordinary weekend. The affects of the actions of a troubled soul will create more troubling despair for a long time to come.
