I had a blog post all ready to go for today but it just didn’t feel right after all that’s occurred. Before posting something so light, I want to take a moment to reflect on yesterday’s tragic events. A Facebook friend of mine posted the following quote:
When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.
I’m spending today with my loved ones. I don’t think I’ll ever fully be able to digest how someone could do something so horrible, but I need to take moment to try.
My prayers go out to all affected, and I hope the community of Newtown and our nation can once again come together and emerge stronger.
