Talk draining out of me

I've been feeling a bit guilty over the past few days that much of my reaction to what's going on is quiet and internal, that that I am not announcing more frequently / vociferously my support for people who are suffering or my concern about people who are missing or my disapproval of attitudes such as "this happened because we don't have prayer in the schools" and "vengeance now at any cost."

I'm going to stop feeling guilty about it.

I care.

And sometimes, that's all anyone can ask for.

This made me think
I've done much of my mourning in private. I feel -- and strongly -- but not in exactly the same way as anyone I know, and it feels fairer and safer to do it alone.

This article rang steel for me:

We all have the right to feel/grieve/handle this in the way that's best for us. And just because a person keeps their own counsel, I don't believe it means they don't care.

Thanks, Joe.

Fortunately, I don't feel anyone else is judging me. It's an internal feeling.
