I can’t find the right words…… But I thing Maria did…….God Bless……..

Originally posted on Maria's Musings:

Friday 12-14-12 started as any other day

Dressing for school, hurried breakfasts, hugs, little ones at play

Dedicated, loving teachers there in the morning

As dedicated, loving parents hand-off their living treasures

Little beating hearts and chubby hands

Giggles and greetings, crayons and colored clay

Chaos and unspeakable violence breached the walls

Of an institution felt safe and warm

By one confused, angry and hurt

An invisible young man now a house-hold name

To the horror of a nation

Yes, even to the shock of the world

And the deep searing grief of the families

Precious lives now cruelly cut short

The aftermath of confusion and pain

The lack of understanding

What are we to do?

Who does this? Who?

Why? WHY?

    Deep prayers for the families, the mothers…

    • Our community joins with Newtown to share in their sorrow and loss by sending our “rose” candle from the Advent Wreath with a black ribbon tied in a bow. …Our thoughts and prayers go out to them……God’s Blessings go out to them…….

  12. should we continue to ask why or pray no more. To the incosolable I offer my heartfelt prayers and hope no more senseless violence.

  13. We all have our stories, I agree. We all feel pain. We all need a kind act or gesture to get us through the rough patches. And hopefully, we will all pay if forward and extend loving kindness to all who cross our paths. Perhaps if we do, another event such as this will be avoided. Maria says it so well and describes how we all weep for souls set free sooner than we were ready to release them.
