It's Okay - Life Goes On
After the tragic events in Connecticut, a woman noticed that Twitter peeps were complaining about people still talking about everyday things. As a mother who lost a son, she illustrates the importance of daily minutiae:
"I expected people to still have awful days where they got a flat tire in the rain and lost their wallet. Or even days when their dinner order was wrong and they just really wanted that burrito. I actually think that is one of the most wonderful things about our world. Life goes on. No matter what, someone is having the worst day of their life. But someone else is having the best day. And even when the worst is very, very bad- like today- normal life still has to happen around it. So if you felt like talking about the awful things that happened today- that’s okay. If you didn’t- well, that’s okay too. If you wanted to count your blessings- great. If you wanted to talk about nothing very important at all- well, that’s great too. It’s okay. "
