Today is a very sad day! What is going on in our country or for that matter our world? Today, it just hit closer to my home. Yes, I live in California but Southern California to be precise. This tragic incident is where my little's receive special need support and services as do many other children and adults. I have been blessed for many years by being able to utilize the services provided by Inland Regional Center but also have been able to utilize the services through the foster care system.
I have worked and also know many of the workers and therapists plus with my own children having their own case managers; this truly saddens me. I keep checking social media of every kind seeing whatever changing news, checking the TV for updates as my case workers have become like family. They may not be family by blood but with all the time and effort spent they are close to family as you can get. They know my children's needs, their services and my needs for resources as well as just being my sounding board at times. I just spoke with one yesterday and had a meeting scheduled for this Thursday. The other I just had meetings with two weeks ago and just spoke to last Wednesday. Many times they go out of their way to do great things and many countless hours spent for my children and all the children and adults in their case load. Many emails and calls back and forth. I am very thankful.
This is just an unnecessary situation as so are the other many tragedy's in our society today. We can ask ourselves why but it will not change what happened today. I do not know what is or is not the right question. I do know that I can pray and continue to pray for fourteen that have been taken to be with the Angels (possibly more per the press conference) and to the fourteen that are being care for in area hospitals as well as to all the families of this senseless tragedy that has made a mark and will forever stand with the unknown of WHY? GOD BLESS!
