I didn’t hear about what happened on Dec. 14 until I was on my way home from work. Thankfully we were shielded from that information; and because I do not sit behind a computer all day, I didn’t see it come across the Internet.

I am fortunate in that my kids saw a movie after school with their father and they also do not have access to the Internet without going through me.

They were blissfully unaware of the events at Sandy Hook Elementary School all weekend until my husband and I told them together on Sunday. I felt that was the way it should be. We wanted to make sure this was something they heard from us, to give them a measure of security. Well, as much as you can as a parent, I guess.
