Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

It is hard to think about what I am thankful for today in the wake of such tragedy. I don’t want to be trite and say I’m thankful that I still have my daughter and my grandson. I thank God for them every single day.

But as shallow as this may sound, I’m thankful today that I have the Internet. Without the Internet, I would not have heard about the events in Newtown. That wouldn’t have made them go away though. I remember the Oklahoma bombing vividly. I happened to be home from work that day and had television on. I watched in horror. On 9-11 I was at work. No television. I felt panicky because I couldn’t find out what was happening. Today, I still didn’t have a TV, but I had a computer…and the Internet. I could live stream news coverage. Probably too much coverage, but at least I could find out what was happening and stay abreast of new developments.

Don’t get me wrong, the Internet isn’t all good. But today it certainly informed me. And I needed that.
