So much Grief.
Our community has been rocked by the
largest mass murder in history for the region.
Eight murdered by a lone man.
Two children in the group.
Then he killed himself.
As a grief counsellor and educator,
I've been interviewed a number of times
over the last few days. My heart aches
for my community, for the family members
left behind, for the children who knew the
little ones, for the family friends, for all of us
struggling to make sense of a senseless act.
I have no words. They're used up and gone.
Why do things like this happen?
I'll never understand.
