I’m sitting in front of the television set, lounging in my boyfriend’s maroon, black and white plaid fleece bottoms and a blue cotton crew neck tee, sipping on a hot chocolate with my raven hair in a messy bun. A NBC special news report flashes on the TV screen about an elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut where (horrifically and I’m so sad and shocked to say) the report claims 18 children are dead alongside eight adults.
The news report claims 20-year-old Adam Lanza of Connecticut came onto the campus and shot multiple children in one particular classroom (details are sketchy right now as the investigation unfolds). FBI Investigator Clint Van Zandt said it’s not possible to put metal detectors in every school with security guards standing in every entry way. Zandt said the issue is catching and fixing the problem of emotionally unstable people like Lanza who shot the children and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
What does this have to with eczema? Nothing. I thought it was important to address a serious, timely issue that hopefully all of us will learn about and follow. The death of these children is as tragic as it was unnecessary. I’ve provided links to the coverage of this shooting below.
