Newtown, Connecticut – our thoughts are with you.

December 15, 2012

Friday morning, tragedy struck. Newtown, Connecticut elementary school shooting.

28 dead. A 20-year-old killed his mother, then massacred Sandy Hook Elementary School killing 20 children and 6 adults, and eventually took his own life.

I’m sure I speak for many when I say my jaw dropped. Instant tears. Heart broken.

Now is a time where we see the world as a whole and how we are all connected. Now is a time for mourning and prayers to all who have lost a loved one. My heart breaks for the children whose innocence are now stripped from them. My tears fall for those whose spirits are broken.

Further down the line, we need to start realizing that the question can’t be ignored. How can we stop this senseless violence?

Where is the love?
“People killin’, people dyin’. Children hurt and you hear them cryin'”

No condolences can ever replace a loved ones life. 😦 I hope that there is more we can do to find justice.
