Sad. Shaken. Heartbroken. All these emotions traveling through our nation and especially hard for teachers to comprehend. We've practiced that very same drill of lock yourself in the classroom and hide in the corner. But it takes on a new meaning. I just can't fathom those precious children whose lives were lost. I can't understand how the children who witnessed the horror will ever feel safe again.
But we can pray. We can know that our faith will sustain us. Prayers will give strength to the families.
