Heartbroken.....

I had a whole post ready to go - give or take a few tweaks - poking fun of an incident that happened earlier this week.  But I'm not feeling very funny right now.

Right now, I am horrified and sickened at the tragedy in Connecticut.

My thoughts, prayers and tears tonight are for those people affected by the senseless act of violence today.

This insanity must stop.....it HAS to stop.  Things like this should NEVER happen again.  And the fact that they already have - too many times to count - is a testament to that fact.

  1. I am from CT nowhere close to that town and I am heartbroken. Nothing seems to feel right. We have an empty christmas tree, and no gifts and no "spirit" we are crushed

  7. I can't even wrap my mind around it. I was in a kinder room today and all I could see was the sweet faces of children who are CHERISHED by their parents and think of the parents who just heard the unimaginable. My heart aches for them.

  9. Every single parent is carrying the horror inside themselves that it could have been OUR child, and in a sense it has been. I cannot stop crying or grieving for the loss we all share. My heart goes out to the families, and all of us who are hurting. The world we live in has gone mad. :-(

  10. It was very quiet and sombre in our school yesterday when I went to pick up my 4th grader. All the parents were just looking at each other as if to say "they were kids like ours". Unthinkable, really.

  11. I just had to create a post because I felt like I had to say something but didn't know what to say. This one hurts my heart so badly.
