While perusing my Facebook feed a couple weeks ago (which is actually when I started writing this post, but then life happened), I stumbled across a link to this article on the Huffington Post called “What Six Looks Like.” Written by Jennifer Rowe Walters, it details her reaction to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and a conversation she had with a friend that clarified that reaction. It’s a very moving post. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should definitely check it out.
What does six look like? I think Ms. Walters does a pretty good job of showing us what six looks like. But what about ten? What does ten look like? Or nine? Or two? Or one?
