Murder in Newtown - God Help Us All
I am overwhelmed by what happened at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. My heart is broken and I cry at the senseless loss. I simply do not understand what happened and I am struggling. So many lives lost, so many lives shattered, so many questions will never be answered.
These families were lighting menorahs, decorating trees, and enjoying the holiday season. Life was being lived one evening, and the next morning everything is different. If I am feeling this kind of pain, what must it be like for these families? It all makes it hard for me to breathe.
For those who bear tonight the unbearable
-- Marianne Williamson
I don’t know what to do, or what to think. I am so sad. I take comfort in prayer, and my tears are a release, but my heart is broken in a way that is confusing. I am keeping these families, those babies, and their heroes in my prayers. The loss is staggering and one can only hope they take comfort in the love we send them. May God help us all as we struggle to keep the faith.
