I’ve been fortunate to make some great connections with other bloggers in the WordPress community. When one of my favorite dad bloggers from Me, Myself and My Kids asked me to write a guest post for his blog, I jumped at the chance to share my stories with his readers.
When he asked me to come up with a topic, I didn’t have to search too far. I had this post idea in my head about how the Sandy Hook tragedy has affected my relationship with my son Jake. But then came the writing … it took me awhile to get this out on paper. It was so close to my heart that I found myself crying several times while I was typing it all out. It was one of those posts where you hesitate before you hit the publish button because you’re just not sure if others will like this or even get your message.
So thanks Larry from Me, Myself and My Kids for giving me the space on your blog to share my story!
It seems that enough time has passed since the tragedy of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings that the feelings wouldn’t still be so raw. However my emotions remain frayed. I can’t seem to get past this tragic event. I continue to feel the aftermath of what happened in that tiny town.
