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.
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.
