Prayers for Connecticut

I have never been one to turn away from the news or to bury my head in the sand when there's been a tragedy.  And I can't remember ever really getting this emotional over a news story that didn't directly touch me.

Not this time.  I intentionally did not watch tv during the day yesterday (my day off) after I read online about the Conneticut school shootings.  When I finally watched some of the coverage last night with my husband, the tears just wouldn't stop.  Such heartbreak for those families. 

My kids are in 4th and 1st grades. If we lived there, they likely would have been in that school.  Even thinking about it today, the tears are threatening again.

Please pray.  Pray for the victims families, the survivors, and the emergency personnel-- the police, squad, and other folks who "work" a scene like that.  None of those peoples' lives will ever be the same.

All the controversy that is online about the gun control laws makes me angry.    I find it terribly disrespectful that these debates are breaking out in the comments sections of nearly every news article I've seen online. FWIW, I firmly believe that making stricter laws about guns only keeps them out of the hands of law abiding citizens.  But that debate can wait.  Right now, we need to focus our thoughts and prayers on the people involved in this tragedy.
