Today in our country another great act of evil was done on the most innocent of our citizens. A gun man walked into an elementary school today and murdered 20 children between the ages of 5-10 and 6 adults in cold blood in Newtown Connecticut. The gunman murdered his own mother before driving to her place of employment and murdering these innocent young souls and the teachers that tried to protect them.
As I mother I feel for the parents that are told that they will no longer be able to see the faces of their sweet children anymore. I hope up on all hope that these families will one day heal and that the children that witnessed this horror will also heal. Their nights will be filled with nightmares and pain and they will need to be helped and they will needed their parents to hold them and I hope that they will get the help they need to over come this act of horror.
This is a total act of evil that can not be explained. We will never know why this man went to this school and took out his rage, hate, and devilish act upon these sweet innocent children. The holidays will be somber and not filled with the joy that it should have. Instead it will be filled with reflections on the short but bright lives of these children that were lost. It will be filled with prayers and hopes that something like this never happens again in this country were family is valued so much.
I held my son and gave him a kiss and held back tears when I watched the news and saw the faces of the children crying and frighten...I will keep them in my prayers and I hope that you all pray for these families and the children that they have lost way too soon.
