I wish that was all I had to write about the number '26'. Unfortunately, most of you have heard by now about the tragedy in Connecticut. We pause in our normal blog offerings to remember those who died last week. We hope that 2013 brings a measure of peace and restoration to all those affected by this sad series of events. While none of the events last week had anything to do with substance abuse, we care about all people and we want healing for all involved.
