"Adrift after newtown"

Jackie Barden hugs her daughter Natalie before bedtime in Newtown, CT on May 23, 2013.  It's one of about a dozen long hugs Natalie will get from her parents throughout a day.  Words and tactile reminders of keeping their children within reach has become routine since their son, Daniel Barden, was killed in a shooting massacre last December.  Since that day, the family has slept together in one room.   Everyone goes to counseling and they all bristle at loud pops, cracks, and lightning.  It's a loving home, but one on delicate edge.  The kids have returned to school but Jackie and her husband Mark have not returned to work.  Days are spent reading emails, sending out memorial wristbands made in their son's memory, and trying to figure out how to energize Americans to vote for gun reform.  Since the national reform law was shot down in congress, the Bardens wonder whether their son's death has been all in vain.
