This is too somber of a time to write about knitting.  Over the weekend my husband and I went to my daughter’s college to watch her play in a water polo tournament.  We had a great time watching her play, and spending time with her.  As we were leaving campus, I commented to my husband about what an idyllic community she is fortunate to be living/schooling in.  I really felt that she was in a period of her life that was safe and exciting.  Monday’s shootings at Virginia Tech also crashed my sense of security for her and college life in general.  I have had difficulty focusing today, as I feel the pain of a parent for all those who lost lives. 

When will we learn that guns do not protect us?  This is a very sad day.  I want to connect with my kids and build a coccoon around them.
