Breaking Sadness

Two children, aged 3 and 5, were stabbed to death, allegedly by their nanny, this afternoon on the Upper West Side of Manhattan (a rather posh neighborhood), according to Gothamist.

NBC News writes, "Neighbors said they heard the mother's screams from her apartment as she called 911."

Horrifying.

My heart and soul go out to the family. I hope some day they can find peace.

I am not sure I could ever bounce back from something like that.

Suddenly, the smoke in my apartment doesn't seem so earth-shattering.


[Update 10/26/12: The children were a two-year-old boy and a six-year-old girl.]
