There are no words for the crushing heartbreak in Newtown, Connecticut. I cannot understand how this madness happens. Here, across the world - again and again.
Pray for comfort for the lost. Work for peace and a world that embraces it.

The anguish and agony of the families doesn't leave my mind for more than a few minutes. It is something that you just cannot wrap your mind around. Senseless.

The anguish & grief I feel in my heart for these innocent souls & their families...my mind will never stop questioning why?...I think of them constantly and pray for them.

Does the rooster even want to crow to start the day? Do the birds have a song in their hearts? It's just unfathomable. Julie

Such profound words from you all. I join in your grief and remain astonished at the length and breadth of evil. Hold those you love tightly and pray for the innocents and those whose lives they touched.

My mother used to say, Peace is the most important thing.
In a marriage, in life, and in the world.

Thank you for this lovely post Charlotte.
Thinking of those lost, the weight of sorrow is unbearable.
Praying for the families left behind and wishing them comfort and peace.
Beginning now, working for change.
