It’s photos like this that kill me. Such devastation captured in a single moment.
As a mother of two children, one that is in 1st grade, this heinous crime and tragedy is truly effecting me. I’ve been crying since word came in on this massacre. Kindergartners are dead…beautiful, innocent, truly innocent babies! I’m angry and saddened all the same time. My heart goes out the families and friends of all those who died. And maybe because its the last day of school here in Los Angeles and winter break is beginning, I can’t help but think this is no way to start Christmas.
Then the topper is seeing President Obama getting a bit emotional as he addresses the nation and the flood gates opened for me. To all those affected, from the bottom of my heart, I’m sooo sorry for your loss.
I will be holding my kids a little more tightly tonight and we will honor those lost by lighting candles for each of them.
