“…shock…still in our bones”

The following is the email I received this morning from my Mama:


The email  sums up perfectly how I feel–yes, the shock is still in my bones reverberating all the way back to September 11, 2001.

I didn’t know the best way to express how I felt about what happened in Boston until I read the email. For some reason I now feel a little less confused though no less angry. Thank you, Mama.

The New York Times has an update about Boston.

I began teaching in 1981, but after a few years decided staying home with my children was what was best for my family. After almost 20 years raising four children, I returned to the classroom in 2005.
