I’m going to kill you (of passing notes and school shootings)

It was a note being passed between friends. That was Tuesday’s news — a note. She was giggling and it was adorable. I look forward to this tiny window being cracked open and the puff of fresh air from her daytime life away from me that sweeps gently across mine. […]
