My Heart is in Connecticut

I was working on a normal post for today, but instead I am just going to say that my heart is breaking for the families in Connecticut.  The parents, the children, the teachers, the community.  My heart is just aching as I sit here unable to stop reading the updates.   I think of my sweet Henry, of my sister working in an elementary school, of just how unspeakably awful this all is.

I am praying for these families.  I am praying for all of us.  And I am tied to the news hoping to see answers that I know will never come.  Because there is no explanation that ever makes since for something this awful.

**Edited to Add:**

We all feel helpless at times like these, but if we all speak up together, there might be a chance to prevent these things from happening again. Contact your congressional representatives about gun control. 

I know we have a right to have guns, and I don't pretend to know the answer, but let's start talking about it. There has to be a way to keep our children safe from things like this.  Parents should not be afraid to send their kindergarteners to school.
