I have been spending the weekend going through Fridays events over and over in my head. I didn't know how to address it, what to say, what not to say.
All I have been doing is praying and hugging my baby. Seeing those baby's faces when their names were released just felt like someone reached in my stomach and pulled my insides out.
I cannot and will not ever be able to imagine what those families are going through. How such a monster could look at each of those little faces with a gun pointing straight at them.
I know most have been taking this as an opportunity to rant about gun control and endless other things. I say give it a rest.
What we need is to pull together, remember those who lost their lives and pray. Pray to whoever it is that you believe in because there is so much good in this world still. A Mr. Rogers quote has been floating around and I love it so much.
“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.” — Mister Rogers
Endless amounts of thoughts and prayers to those in Newtown, CT.
