But I will say this: the fact that the media are interviewing the traumatized children is testament to the disregard some have for children. How dare they approach kids who have witnessed murder and death and ask them to talk into the microphone? Please leave these kids alone. They are not your field reporters. They are kids. And right now they need to go home and talk to parents and counselors and ministers, etc. And parents: hug your kids tightly. Shed tears and let them see you, too, are moved by these events.
I think I will be dipping back into Anne LaMott's book tonight.
