These are just a handful of the flood of emotions I have experienced today after learning of the unspeakable acts committed against the elementary school in CT. I cannot, nor do I even want to try, to imagine the loss that the parents and loved ones are feeling right now. All I could think of was to get home as quickly as possible and wrap my arms around my children. My thoughts and prayers go out to those whose arms are empty tonight.
I focused today, probably because I am a mother on the loss a mother must feel, but this picture made me think of those men who swore to protect their families and the depth of the hurt that is in their hearts tonight. I pray that they would somehow find peace.
