All the adults who died were women [View all]

In a political season where women and their rights were used as punching bags, and women like Sandra Fluke were slut-shamed for standing up for their rights, it is interesting to me that the heroes of Sandy Hook are women. Those who died saving, and trying to save, their young charges. Those who did save their kids, and kept them as safe and calm as possible until help arrived.

Women who were teachers and library clerks and psychologists. Most members of a union. The biggest "devils" of the Right.

(I am not discounting the custodian who risked his life to protect the children or any other of the brave and caring men who are part of this story, but after the last year of women and teachers taking such hits, the irony is strong.)
