I have gone back and forth on whether I should write a post about the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. There have been so many beautiful articles written about the lives lost and how to continue down the road of healing. What could I possibly offer that has not already been said hundreds of times?
I am not sure. But what I can offer is more love and prayers going out to the loved ones who have been affected and daily meditational peace being sent to them from Colorado. I know that it is not just me, it is everyone that has felt the pain of this tragedy. Everyone watches the news and thinks “this could have been us, this could have been in my backyard.” Unfortunately, it has been in the Colorado backyard too many times. As a community, we know all too well the type of grief that Newtown is feeling. I have a hunch that there are millions of beautiful prayers being sent daily to Connecticut from this lovely state.
I have heard some say that sending love and prayers is not enough. We need action. I agree, action needs to be taken. The real question is, “what kind?”. My hope is that something happens, but not until all of these beautiful souls have been laid to rest. Let us all come together in peace and send them off to a better place with all the love we can muster up.
