holding tightly


Friday's tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut has me reeling.  I think we all held our kids more tightly that day.

My kids are on the older side, so I left the news radio on for part of the day, until it just got way too sad to deal with.  I was holding out hope there would be some survivors.  I am praying for all the families involved, and I hope and pray that more than a dialogue about mental health and the lack of help available to parents will ensue and that change will occur.

This post- by Liza Long is a cry for help that our country cannot afford to ignore.

I am holding my children more tightly these days and sad painful thoughts follow me into sleep.
