For Sandy Hook Elementary and Newtown, Connecticut

When an event as horrific as last Friday’s murders of twenty children and seven adults occurs, it is impossible to not have thoughts and want to comment on the factors that both could have caused or prevented the incident. I ruminated about today’s blog for sometime but cannot find a way to express my sorrow or regret over the loss of so many lives so abruptly. As individuals we cannot effect actions or laws that might reduce such acts of violence in the future. As members of an industry committed to the support and delivery of information, we can solicit our representatives to be responsible to each and every one of us by ascertaining what legislation or policies can be enacted to limit future occurrences. I will offer my opinion to my representatives this week because staying silent is no longer an option.

However, today, here, I want to simply remember, reflect and honor those lives lost. I wish to extend my thoughts of support and sympathy to the families and community directly affected by this tragedy. They will carry the memories of last week forever. The least we can do is reflect upon them now:
