This is a digital of my little Schnoodle, Cookie. It best represents what turmoil is in my heart tonight. I'm trying to look for an answer to WHY? Why would someone go into an elementary school and shoot children. I have such heaviness in my heart.
I know the intense pain that slashes a parent's heart when their child dies. I lost my son to cancer in 1989. I'll never get over it, but I've learned to live without him. I can't imagine trying to heal from a child's murder.
20 children got out of their warm beds this December Friday morning, getting ready for school while mom or dad packed the lunches that would not be opened. Tonight, heaven has 20 more little angels from Sandy Hook Elementary but their parents are writhing in pain on earth and others, like myself are shocked numb.
As the details are uncovered, 6 adults inside the school were also killed. Teachers became heroes in just a few blinks of an eye. I know my last sentence is going to sound preachy but here it is: We need the Christ in Christmas.
