I cannot begin to express my feelings on the tragedy that took place today at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut. My heart goes out to the families of those poor children and staff that had their life taken away far too soon. I can’t understand how anyone could harm another person, let alone a child. I will be praying for the families, survivors, and all those involved.
Let us all hug our children a little closer tonight and say a prayer for these victims. The world is becoming a scarier place by the day. Maybe I feel that way because I’m getting older and seeing things from a different perspective, but these severe acts of violence are becoming far too common. I can’t imagine the pain their loved ones are feeling, the nightmares the other children will have, or the breaking of parent’s hearts as they try to comfort their little one with words of love.
I know one little girl, who will be held extra tight and cuddled a little longer as she is rocked to sleep tonight.
