Monday’s Stats: Memorial Edition

Today isn’t Monday. It’s Tuesday, yet here is my “Monday’s Stats” post. What gives? Well, almost every Monday since March, 2011 I’ve posted some kind of social media or marketing stats but this week I didn’t have it in me. Like the rest of the country I’m finding it a little hard to get back to business as usual in light of the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday. Perhaps it’s because I have a six year old at home and a mother who teaches public school or maybe it’s the jarring reality of evil’s persistent existence in our world.

It’s probably all of that really. For that reason I decided to skip the usual social media and marketing stats for the week and focus on a different list…the names of the 26 victims. It helps to remember that despite the temptations to want to distance ourselves from tragedy, there were real children and adults who aren’t alive anymore and there are real families hurting and suffering through this terrible ordeal. Knowing the names helps this sink in so as an effort to keep the memory of the victims part of our present reality here they are again:
