A Day of Grief

I know this off topic, but my heart is broken, 20 small children and six adults were killed today by a deranged person at an elementary school in Connecticut. My thoughts and prayers are with their families. The violence must stop, our children deserve a future.

Addendum
So many bloggers are heartsick today, and the world seems so dark.  I read "Mini Dork's" post on her blog which she has called "Faith," and, despite the incredible grief we all feel, I have a little more hope today than yesterday. I encourage you to visit her blog, http://modernminihouses.blogspot.com,

Love to all, Neen

  2. I will never understand this! I mean why didn't he just stop with his mom! Not that that would have been better by any means. We will probably never know why he had gone to the school. GOD must just cry over how we are turning out as a society! I was so upset that on the way to work I told God that he might just as well blow up the world now! I mean, KILLING KIDS! What did they ever do wrong.

  5. Drora, I agree, there is no reason behind this madness. We can only hug the ones we love a little tighter, and work to make sure these crimes don't happen.
    Hugs to you, Neen
