There are no words, only emotions. Unspeakable tragedy. What can never take place again, has happened.
There is beauty. It can be hard to see when darkness takes the world.
There is beauty in the shepherding by police of youngsters to places of safety.
There is beauty in the testimony of a parent that "his teacher did a phenomenal job of making him feel safe" (about her son).
There is beauty in the sensitivity of the police chief who says,"...there are things we will not discuss yet...a trooper has been assigned to each family...they will be the first to know everything, so they don't need to watch TV [to know what is going on in the investigation]."
But beauty is very hard to see through tears.
Let's hug our loved ones tonight.
