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.
