All we can do is PRAY

Words can not explain the sadness that is felt right now.  Emotions are raw as we hear the news, watch the footage and talk to each other about the shootings in Connecticut.  Innocent children lay victim so such a horrific act.I can't wrap my mind around it.

All we can do for the moment is pray.  Pray as God wraps his arms around these families, children, staff, friends, and community and holds them tight.  He WILL carry them through the saddest days.

Tomorrow will be a day of silence here to honor the victims and their families.  It is a way to show our our love and support for Sandy Hook Elementary School.  You can read the details over at Farley's Oh Boy, Fourth Grade.   A huge thank you to Farly for organizing this.

For today, hug you family a little tighter, show kindness to those you don't know and spread love in the world around you.
