Lives Permanently Altered-By: Donna Volpitta, Ed.D,0 News and Blog interdependence, life changing, resilience
There are events that change us. They permanently change who we are and who we will be.
These are the events that compel us to search our souls.
These are the events that force us to face emotions.
These are the events that push us to our limits and test to see just how far we can go.
These are the events that expose our vulnerability and emphasize our interdependence.
In the hours and days following these events, we cannot comprehend the change that has taken place.
In the weeks and months following the event, we begin to recognize our new reality.
Through the years, we may even begin to heal and find a new sense of purpose, one that before would never have been possible.
But never, never will we be the same again.
And it is through these the lens of these events that we will forever tell the rest of our story.
For Newtown CT, today was such an event.
