at least 40 newly bereaved parents in minutes...

Yesterday, in a kindergarten classroom, 20 beautiful young souls lost their lives in unthinkable tragedy.  

Today, their parents are likely watching the sunrise on one of the darkest days of their lives; the first day without their beloved child.  

My heart breaks into a thousand pieces for them.  How quickly life can, and does, change.  Yesterday, they ate breakfast and sent their loved ones off to school.  For the last time.

It's hard to even wrap one's mind around it.  It's unfathomable.

All that can be said has been said.  My heart is with Sandy Hook Elementary's victim's parents, whose lives will never, never be the same.  I, along with much of the country, held my children close throughout the night, unable to shake the unshakable after hearing the unthinkable.  

There just are no words.

"Weep with those who weep."  Romans 12:15


  1. Yes, and although as bereaved mothers we will grieve and pray with them, this is an exclusive club for which we wish there were no members. Their journey of grief and sorrow just begins.

  2. It is beyond sad. I could not sleep last night. My heart breaks for those little children and their families. Such tragedy.

  3. Wishing it were different. Thanks for the Romans verse--that's all I can do is weep with them. Peace.
