I am sharing this story because I am Adam Lanza’s mother. I am Dylan Klebold’s and Eric Harris’s mother. I am James Holmes’s mother. I am Jared Loughner’s mother. I am Seung-Hui Cho’s mother.

This post also made me think of a book I read a few years back called We Need to Talk About Kevin. It’s worth a read — or, you can watch the movie, though I haven’t seen it.
