A Moment to Reflect

Sandy Hook Elementary

The tragedy of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting is horrific, painful, and senseless. But the fact that most of the victims were children not much older than my two nieces is especially difficult for me to swallow. During this holiday season, please hug your family members just a little bit tighter. Just because.

    I never knew what could possibly bring an Angel to uncontrollable tears. On Friday, I received my answer. GOD bless and comfort the families and keep them strong. And let’s ALL be a little bit kinder…..to EVERYONE

    I don’t trust myself to say how I feel as every thought is tempered by rage and disbelief. Something is very wrong.

    i’m doing a little reading, but I just can’t do a post yet. It may be a few more days. I have felt like all the air has left my lungs. It’s somehow good to share it with my blogging friends, though. Community feels important. Bless you!

    Yeah, it was difficult to fathom how something of this magnitude could happen… can’t imagine the torment of the parents. God watch over all of them…
