Even Santa Cries…

Traumatic events can impact anyone.  No one is exempt.  Each person has their own emotional trigger.

This is especially true for First Responders.  While there are common reactions to traumatic events, an individual’s reaction may very based upon the life experiences, immediate support network and overall connection to their larger social networks. First Responders take care of others first.  We have to remember to take time for self-care and our teammates.

What is happening in Newtown on Christmas? Have all the out of towners left by now?

This day, just after the Sandy Hook Elementary Schools shootings, even Santa was too overwhelmed.  All he could do was cry.
