About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

What is there to say after news like Newtown, Connecticut?

I have nothing further to say that hasn’t already been said. I share in the nation’s grief for this tragic loss of life.

There are some important articles to read on this trying time in America and I hope no one has taken the past year–or past two decades–of violence lightly.

Mother Jones: Mass Shootings Investigation

Please read “I am Adam Lanza’s Mother” if you have not already. There is some strong language in it so I won’t link it here. It is a piece about mental illness and it’s a powerful one.

CNN: A List of the Victims. I hate to encourage the media peering into the grieving families at this time but the victims should be remembered.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday. I know I have a new perspective after what happened last week.
