"Adrift after newtown"
Mark Barden comforts his wife Jackie while reading condolence emails at home in Newtown, CT on May 23, 2013. Daniel Barden, their son, was among the school children killed in Newtown last December. Sympathy cards and memorial gifts from around the world still trickle in. The community continues bring meals and casseroles to the home. Time passes ever so slow. The Bardens, their two children Natalie, 11 and James, 13 are all in therapy. Though the children have returned to school the parents have yet to return to work. Seems everything from yogurt to paint color reminds them of Daniel. Days are full of long stares, a few tears and occasionally lobbying for unpopular gun law reform.
