Words and photos do not seem to do justice to the nightmare endured in Connecticut. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain, confusion, anger, broken hearts and devastation that the families, friends and survivors at Sandy Hook Elementary School are experiencing.
WHY??? WHO WOULD DO THIS???
My mind keeps screaming and my eyes keep filling with tears. I am the mom of a kindergartener and a preschooler. I feel a tightness in my heart that a mother, nor anyone, should never feel and then I think of those who actually are living this nightmare. I can not imagine the loss and tragedy.
How can something like this happen? Why does this keep happening? We are the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! This is unacceptable!
The mall shooting a few days ago rocked me a little. I’ve always had a small fear that something like that would be so easy for a crazy person to attempt, but only days later another one…what is going on in our country??? How can we fix the broken? How can we heal as a country and come together? How can we expect to not see future damage from the trauma that these surviving children have witnessed?
We are living in hard times, for many reasons, but we are also blessed in The Land Of The Free, but at what cost? I don’t want to have anxiety five days a week after dropping my angels off at school until I pick them up and know they are safe. I want to go shopping, to a major sporting event, an amusement park or popular attraction without lingering fear that some psycho might just go off the deep end.
My thoughts, prayers and heart goes out to all of those effected by this nightmare, as well as all the others who are feeling the disgust and pain of the evil that tortured a Connecticut community.
The unthinkable has happened; our hearts hurt for this tragedy.
Until Next Time,
