As I came home from work, ready to tackle the lights for the tree and blog about the office Christmas party and how up-lifting I felt today, Tom was telling me about the school shooting in Connecticut that happen this morning.
I turned on the T.V. to listen to the report, and all I could do is shake my head and send up a pray for the lost of life of 20 killed children and their families. All I could think about was the senseless killing that has been happening all over, even the shooting at the mall and the one in July at the movie theater. It makes you want to never step outside your door.
I'm sorry if I am bringing you down with this, but I just had to get this feeling of sadness off my chest as tears of sorrow roll down my cheeks. When will this senseless killing of our fellow man stop. Oh, how I have so much I want to write, but life will go on. There will be celebrations of Christmas cheer, the sharing of families love. We will feel blessed that we have made it through another year, but what of those who have not.
I will pray tonight for the families who have lost a love one through senseless tragedy, of mindless people who think they need to take others with them on their madness.
Hold your love ones close, and always let them know how much you love them.
