Yesterday's massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, is so vile and heartbreaking; I honestly can't find words to …. I just don't know what to say.
I haven't let my mind go even close to thinking fully about the living nightmare that the students, parents, faculty, families and first-responders are suffering through.
My imagination stretches to some extremely dark and morbid places, yet even letting my mind travel to those furthest corners is merely a vantage point from where I might see a glimpse of the reality that is their lives.
And I just can't bring myself to even look that far.
Tethered though my mind may be, my heart is filled beyond its fullest expanse with love, compassion, sympathy and prayers for everyone whose lives were so unfairly changed by yesterday's tragedy.
To Everyone Else:
Hug your loved ones a little tighter, say “I love you” an extra time, spoil your kids a little bit extra during the holidays (and every other chance you get).
We can't protect the people we care about from everything out there. But we can take every opportunity there is to help them feel safe, loved and secure.
