Because of the Day of Remembrance, SIT is getting a bit of a later start than usual. I thought it was more than appropriate to take time to honor those who lost their lives in Connecticut as well as all those affect by this unnecessary and unfathomable tragedy.
I have no words to describe the overwhelming grief I feel for all the little children, the families, the adults, the school, and the community. All I can do is pray constantly for God to restore their lives. At the same time it’s hard to imagine that it’s even possible.
I am being completely honest when I say it feels wrong in every sense of the word to host a linky party less than a week after this international tragedy.
Wrong because so many people are grieving. Wrong because little children lost their lives and their innocence. Wrong because families are left with broken hearts in the middle of what is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year.
But, it remains that life has to go on. We can’t let evil win and stop us from living.
As we move forward, we can commit to living more meaningful lives. We can commit to letting go of things that just aren’t important. We can commit to being more loving, more thoughtful, more giving, more tolerant.
As we move forward it’s not because we forgot and we don’t care. It’s because we care deeply with a renewed commitment to make our lives and our world a better place.
May God bless all of you and keep you safe throughout this holiday season.
