I wanted to take a moment out of normal blogging life to note my disbelief, shock, horror and sadness over the school shooting in Connecticut.
Listening to the radio this morning left me in tears. Since hearing the news I have scoured the internet for all the info I can find and still I can't believe it, even though its true.
Rebecca at Weight Wars has also blogged about her sadness today too, it seems that there is no escaping the fact that a 20 year old man broke into a school and killed 6 adults and 18 children aged between 5yrs and 10yrs old. He had killed his mother before going to the school, and then he killed himself once he was finished with the children.
I drop my own children at school and give no thought to their safety. I am happy and reassured that at 3pm I will collect them and we will go about our afternoon. I can't even begin to comprehend or fathom how you go about dealing with the news that your child was shot dead whilst at school. My eyes fill with tears even now as I type.
My thoughts and condolences are with all the people affected by the tragedy. I urge you to take a pause, to hug your family, to be grateful and to remember that you don't know how long you have with your loved ones.
With lots of love and the brightest of blessings xxxxx
