Comfort Your People

As a former elementary school educator who has sheltered her seven-year-old second graders during lock-downs, while the thump, thump, thump of police helicopters hovered overhead, my heart is broken for the loss of the precious souls killed on Friday, December 14, 2012, in Connecticut.

As a mother who prays daily for her son’s well-being, my heart aches for the mothers whose children were taken from them.

As a member of the human race, my heart is torn apart at the pain we inflict on each other.

Such evil.

Such innocence lost.

Such horror.

As parents, family members, and friends are left to mourn, and wonder at the senselessness of the tragedy, my thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this  violence. May they be comforted in their sorrow.

There will be a day.

I wish you well.

  1. I am saddened by the lose of those dear lifes in Newtown. My heart hurts for them.
    But I take comfort in the love of the Lord and His mercies. There is such in knowing
    that one day there will be no more tears, no more death, no more sorrow.
