  •  Thank you, Vetwife (7+ / 0-)

    For being part of the solution.

    For providing a gentle reminder for those suffering to seek help, because it is available. To reach out instead of lash out or isolate.

    Trauma-exposed folks are frequently triggered by events like the one happening today. And there are a LOT of trauma-exposed people out there, not just this school full of children and their families. Events like the ones unfolding defy explanation, but the repercussions of days like today on those already touched by trauma can be awful, and are sadly all too common.

    So a diary like this, reminding those who need it that there is comfort and support available to them, and that if they reach out, someone who understands will be there for them, has value beyond measure.

    "When did it fall apart? Sometime in the '80s / When the great and the good gave way to the greedy and the mean." - Billy Bragg
