More very odd interviews from Sandy Hook family members.Submitted by fishyculture on Sat, 01/12/2013 - 17:35
I hate to "go here" as I do believe people died that day. Who, how, why, I don't know. But as a few members here recount losing their fathers, I am reminded of the time right after my father died. It was then I learned why people take food to neighbors who had a death in the family, a custom I always thought odd. The reason is because most grieving people go into a state of shock, such that they forget to eat. It was a very private time, we did what we had too and then took shelter in our old home, our whole family together, minus Dad.
We actually did go out and "put on the brave face" one night. My brother was being honored for 25 or 35 years of service, he was Chief of the Village Fire Dept and paramedic on the local life squad. It was supposed to be a very private thing with just the department and Village Council, but when the little town learned that all of us were in town and why, they threw together this fabulous feast for all of us on about 2 hours notice. We went, we smiled and laughed and choked back tears from time to time. They were wet, even my brothers. And we had puffy faces from crying, none of us women bothered to put on make up. We did not even start to look for a will until he was laid to rest. This was for a man in his 70's. These people lose a child and immediately start pitching for gun control, and set up web pages? And, are those for donations?
Please, don't let the theories presented distract you. There are interviews with 2 relatives woven together here, and that is the part I wish to call your attention to. I don't know what happened, this guy does not know either. Just watch these people, listen to them. Do they seem more like they are grieving the loss of a child, or on a mission to ban guns?
I know it is brutal hard to question people who may be truly just numb, but this pitching for gun control before your child's body is cold is becoming a recurring theme in these events. We have to look, even if it hurts.
