Coping with School Tragedies


The recent shooting in Newtown CT makes us all reflect on the braveness displayed by those teachers involved, their quick thinking and their utmost care of and devotion for the  students. There are many lessons here for us.

How does one cope during and afterwards?  The impact is felt worldwide. Here is a good article on how to approach news items such as these with children – Talking about the news with kids.  Angela Maiers has written  this wonderful post on There is no lesson plan for tragedy.  Our thoughts and prayers are with those who are closely involved.

My wonderful friend, Lorraine Leo has created a google map for people to add candles in a show of global sympathy and support for those who suffer. Lorraine also alerted me to this post Preparing for the Worst Case Scenario
