We here in CT know that most of all. And most of us struggle to put that behind us. Along with that tragedy, we have had to absorb the fatal fire in Stamford which took the lives of Madonna Badger's three children and parents. Before that there was the Chelsea home invasion which took three lives.
Our feeling is predictable. And, I have a hunch it permeates the nation. That's why it was jarring as well as puzzling to read "The Day Before" in the current issue of VANITY FAIR. It chronicles how a Newtown priest, school principal, and police official spent the day before the carnage. (sub. req.)
An article on healing, ranging from Newtown to Stamford, would have been more appropriate and useful. For example, who wouldn't rejoice to find out that Badger is back to work and Dr. Petit, lone survivor of the home invasion, is married with a child due in December. It might be premature for Newtown to have made much progress in moving on.
