Events like the Newtown, CT school shootings simply leave one numb. As one who moves in the halls of academia, the possibility of something like that happening is one that crosses the mind. When it does take place, it hurts.
Not so far from Newtown is Danbury, CT. Years ago a group of very accomplished musicians from there made an album entitled Outpouring, and podcasting its ending track No More Time to Run is my response, poor though it may be, to this tragedy. It not only comes from the area but is right for the season as well.
My prayers are with the families and others who have come through this.
