    Thoughts with all those trying to come to terms with this, in Newtown and elsewhere.
    Geographically I’m many miles away, but as a Mum and fellow Teacher of the age group concerned, I’m right there with you. I cannot even begin to imagine what is going through the community up there right now.
    Love to all from England

      Thanks for sending your love. I think all mom’s wherever they are, feel the same way. I appreciate your comment.

    I agree with you to my core. It’s horrific to know there is such evil in our world, nation, community.
    We lost a son to cancer; NOTHING helps the hurt! Time heals all wounds…not true…it’s just that much longer since I’ve seen him, held him, heard him say, as he patted my cheeks, “you’re the best mom in the world”. We have a children’s charitable organization in his name, “Spencer’s Wishes”. So we spent a lot of time with children; especially at this time of year. We have a entertainment & shopping spree for 100 children each year; with each child having their own volunteer to help and watch them. Some think we go over-board, as we check every adult who comes in the door; if they’re not on our list, they’re escourted out by Police who attend our party, as well as BACA who are given devises to detect registered sex offenders within a certain range. It’s sad our own little community of 10,000 people has come to this, but while these children are in our care, NOTHING is more important than their safety. I thought, “what if someone as wicked as this person forced their way into our party and killed even 1 child. Unbearable….! Without the knowledge of where my son is and how happy he is & what he’s doing; his death would have been unbearable. God bless those parents…he can, and does heal broken hearts, he did mine!

    I am a new subscriber to your blog, having found my way here from a Pin. Today’s post has sealed it for me, though. I will follow your blog as long as you keep it running. I greatly appreciate your taking the time to express what so many of us are feeling after the horror at Sandy Hook. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and perpetual light shine upon them.

      You put into words what all of us are feeling in our hearts. Your Day of Remembrance is very appropriate. There are so many of us that feel exactly as you stated. I am thankful for those words, because even though I am usually prolific with words, this has stunned me so I can not express myself, and I appreciate your doing it for me. “Sleep in heavenly peace” to the victims, and God bless and grant peace to their families, and all of us.
