Dedicated To Newtown, CT

On Friday, December 14, 2012, the most tragic mass shooting in US history occurred. I was at work and a coworker came in from lunch and told us what had happened. It was one of those surreal moments where you can't believe it happened, even with the news story staring you in the face. I went to lunch and called my husband, told him to give Eli hugs from me. He asked why, and I was like, "Didn't you hear about what happened in Connecticut??" After that, he watched CNN all day and updated me on what happened. 20 innocent babies gone from this world :'( The day's events weighed heavily on me, and it's one of those things that's difficult to comprehend. A friend of mine posted this quote on FB: Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children. From now on each wounded, abandoned, frightened child is yours. You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed and weep with them. You long to comfort all who are desolate. - Charlotte Gray

My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to the families who lost a loved one that day. May you find peace and comfort in God's embrace <3
