In My Thoughts and Prayers
As I started my morning, going about my daily life without a care in the world, I was stunned to hear the news of the carnage that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. At a time when we should all be looking forward to Christmas, cherishing family and friends and making memories, there are families who will now be planning funerals. Funerals for people who just hours ago were going about their day. People who were full of life. Some of them adults with so much to live for. And some of them innocent children with so much time and joy ahead of them.
The unthinkable is intruding into our lives and our society more and more. It angers me. It leaves me feeling helpless, and hopeless. Maybe someday we will have the answers as to why tragedy happens, why people make the decision to commit evil, and why that evil even has to exist in the first place.
I pray for peace, love and strength for all of those impacted by this senselessness. Hug and kiss your children. Tell everyone who matters to you that you love them more than words can say.
And be grateful for this day, and the breath and life that is in you.
