Loss for Words

Like people worldwide, we are deeply saddened by the senseless violence in a Newton, CT elementary school this week. Even more heartbreaking is learning that these so young victims were first-graders between 6-7 years of age. And, that the adults who died did so trying to protect even more children.candles9 0105

These times try not only our souls, but truly our minds and especially  our hearts.

Hug your loved children, grandchildren and others. If they are not near, call  or write — and perhaps do it more often than before. Time is far too short; memories may need to last longer than we know.

I've been at a loss for words, too. It breaks my heart to think about what's happened in Newtown. I've been praying for all of them.

That is so true. Wish I could hug my granddaughter more often. They tell me they're coming down to visit in June (from Alaska)...soooo excited.
