silence

last friday my heart sank. in a way that i never thought possible. i dont know any single person in CT, but i do know that there are so many families that will never be the same. 
parents without their kiddos
kiddos without their siblings
kiddos without their mom
grandparents without their grandkids
friends without their best friend

i cannot even begin to image the pain and hurt and sadness all these people are going through. the presents left unwrapped under the tree. not getting to see another birthday. not playing in the snow. 
the list just goes on. it is a terrible thing. 

my prayers and thoughts are with each and every single family. all those affected. the first responders. the police. the community. all our thoughts and prayers are with you.

remember these names. 
the beautiful children. 
the hero teachers.

remember these names.
