I arrived at work this morning with the intention of posting about the funny things kids say, because F has been coming at us with some awesome stuff lately. But as soon as I walked in, I was greeted with the breaking news about the school shooting in Connecticut, and my heart just broke, and it keeps on breaking as the morning rolls on. Nothing seems that funny right now.
Is it becoming a parent that makes this stuff resonate so much more deeply within us? Or is it just part of growing up? Both? I had to go on the air and report the story during my first on-air break this morning, and I got so choked up that I cut it short and went right into my commercial break. Then I cried. I am – as I’m sure we all are – just devastated for those kids and families and the greater community that surrounds that school. It is unimaginable.
So, because we’re a music station and not a news station, I’m playing more music today, and doing my best to keep it together. At least until 3pm rolls around and I get to go pick up my girl. I’m going to hold her so, so, so tight.
