WISHING THERE WAS SOMETHING I COULD DO (but I can’t even make sense of this tragedy)

I can’t even bring myself to watch the news. What happened today at Sandy Hook elementary school is simply too shocking and devastating to put into words. I feel a strong need to do something proactive and, as my little L is tucked safely and snuggly in bed and I can’t smother him with kisses for fear of waking him, my thoughts wander to whether some fund or program will be set up that I can, at the very least, make a financial contribution to. I can light candles, pray for peace, feel for the victims and their families… somehow it doesn’t seem enough. I can’t fathom how something as hideous as this can happen. What I do know is that I am grateful from the bottom of my heart for my little soundly sleeping boy and the baby in my belly who is kicking me as I sit here typing this.

  1. Ya it’s sad. I have friend’s who live there in Connecticut. But fortunately he works in New York, so they live closer to there. They have two little one’s in school. All we can do is try hard to keep our kid’s as safe as possible.

  2. You are doing the best thing of all which is loving your children. If you would like to join me in posting a picture of your candle I would love to share in the support that light gives. Feeling helpless otherwise 😦

  3. I just found out. I’m heart broken. These things hit you so much harder when you have kids. May God keep children safe everywhere.
