Tragedy

Time is bereaved,

Rage surges,

Anguish and sorrow swell in the hearts of some, while

Gratitude permeates the very being of those who were delivered.

Emotions, intertwined, ebb and flow,

Yielding never.

Tragedy struck yet again.  Tonight’s post is in honor of the families in Newtown, CT who lost a child or loved one today in the horrific shooting event that occurred at an elementary school.  I cannot fathom the emotions that must be going through the hearts and minds of the victims’ families. My heart breaks for them.  They will ever be in my thoughts and prayers.  Please join me in hoping and praying that all people nearing the point of extreme emotional or mental instability obtain the help needed to prevent such devastating tragedies in the future.

  1. It is particularly sad and horrific when something like this happens. But 20 children never to see another year? Unimaginable. And all the other children who have now lost their sense of security, of joy in the season. I grieve for all, but mostly for those parents who have lost children. I know what that feels like!

    • Oh Paul I couldn’t agree with you more. And I am so sorry to learn of your loss. I have not experienced the loss of a child myself but have friends how have and I’ve witnessed their heartache. So very sad. May the rest of your Christmas season be filled with joy.
