Heartbreak

Yesterday the most horrific act occurred against small, defenseless children and those who dedicated their lives to educating and protecting them.  As the mother of a first grader and kindergartner, it took everything I had not to run to the school yesterday and grab my children, just so I could hold them and tell them how much I loved them.  To know that there are parents who can no longer do this...well, it's just too much to bear. 

If you have children who are asking questions, I have linked to a great site to help.  Here is another one too. 

My thoughts and prayers are with all but especially with the parents of those 20 babies.

I share your sadness Rene, as a human being, as a woman, as a mother. And I pray that we can still plant seeds of loving kindness in this world in the hope that respect for human life is given first priority.
I send you a big hug, cause we all need a hug...

I am finding it hard to put into words what I feel, I am heartbroken for those poor children that lost their lives in a horrific and terrifying way, the ache I get in my heart when I think of them and how scared they must have been is almost unbearable. As a mother who has lost a child of my own I can sadly understand what those poor parents are going through right now and will do forever more, my thoughts and prayers are with them.
Sending you a hug from one mother to another ((()))
