There are good things about the blogosphere and there are bad things about the blogosphere. But the good outweighs the bad. And one of the best things about the blogosphere is how much most of us genuinely care about each other, and band together during a crises. I have experienced it myself. And the outpouring of love from the blogosphere can make all the difference. It did for me. I would not have survived my diagnosis without this blog. I know that.
It took me a long time to write this post because I didn't want it to seem like I was jumping on a bandwagon and pretending to be something I'm not. I was not friends with either of these bloggers. I did not know them. I did not read them. But they are both moms. They are both human beings.
It is impossible not to feel immense pain and immense sadness.
There are donations buttons and funds everywhere. Give if you can. Or don't. Do what makes you feel comfortable. But hug your children tighter today.
Shana and Heather, please know how sorry I am. How we all are. No parent should bury a child. Ever.
