My Shock at the Newtown, CT, Sandy Hook Elementary School News

Late this afternoon, I was done with work so I decided to do a quick check on my Facebook account as my kids were due to wake up from their naps soon. As my newsfeed was updating, I noticed a couple statuses about prayers for Connecticut. I decided to Google CT latest news.

I was no prepared to read what I read.

At that moment, my kids both woke up from their naps while tears were running down my face. I held them both tightly and gave them kisses. My oldest, at 2-1/2 years old looked at me with confusion and asked why I was crying. I did not know what to say to him and so all I could convey was, “I’m very sad baby.” Then he proceeded to give me a hug.

I was and still am in shock to say the least. How can someone shoot at children? Ages 5-10. I am so sad by this news and wish I could reach out and give hugs to each of the parents who lost their innocent children today. But even if I could it would not bring any of the children back to life. I can only pray for the families and hope that one day they will be able to remember their children not with sad memories but with fond ones.
