Survivor's guilt

I'll get back to blogging eventually, but it just seems a bit trivial at the moment.  I just feel weird that we "dodged the bullet" twice.  The first time was when Hurricane Sandy hit--not only did we never lose electricity, heat, hot water, internet, or even something as trivial as cable television, but we even got paid (on time, no less) for the days when we were stranded at home without subways.  And now, we've been spared the kind of tragedy that the parents of the murdered children in Newtown, CT must deal with for the rest of their lives.  I'm extremely grateful to have been spared both times.  But it feels weird to carry on as if nothing has happened just because nothing happened to us.
