As I get ready to go on the air with Dennis Fithian, it’s days like this where we all struggle to make sense of such a horrific act that hurts and saddens us all so deeply. As heart wrenching as it is to even imagine something like this happening , I am so very grateful to be able to help steer a cathartic discussion about how this has affected all of us.

This is an event much like 9/11 that truly affects everyone, whether or not you have children, and we all have questions we want answered and feelings that cut deep in our hearts. This is a day where all need to know it is ok to talk about those feelings, it is ok to grieve, it is ok to be broken.

President Obama said it best, our hearts are broken today, and to be able to talk about those emotions is such an important and healthy thing. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by today’s unconscionable events.
