One of the victims of the shooting in Tucson yesterday was a nine-year-old girl.
Like Ethan, she was born in 2001. In fact, she was born on 9/11 and, according to her mom, "it lent a grace note of hope to that terrible day."
I felt the same way about 2001: it was a horrible time, a very stressful time for just about everyone, including us. But it was also one of the best years of my life, because we had this beautiful baby boy.
So I think about this poor little girl's family, and of course I think about Ethan.
Hug the ones you love, and feel blessed.
