Prayers, condolences and thoughts

Today, I am a mother above all other roles.  I take it for granted that when I say goodbye to my son each day during drop-off, I will see him back in my arms again later in the day.  Like all over you, I am heart-broken and sickened by the sinister act of violence that took place in Newtown, Connecticut today.  While nothing I say or do will help those grieving parents, family of the brave faculty members, and the traumatized children who've had to witness the events, I do want to give my thoughts and condolences.

It's been an emotional day.  This enlarging string of violence in our country needs to somehow come to an end.  

God Bless America.

When you're down and troubled, all you need to do is "Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you." - Hebrews4:15-16. It will keep you strong and face the world with a happy heart. Condolence words are comforting. Thanks for sharing your story. God bless.
