As a parent my heart exploded today. Working in hospice as a career, I am fully aware I can never truly empathize with the moms and dads, brothers,
sisters, aunts, uncles, and more in CT, but I absolutely, wholeheartedly, and unashamedly deeply care. I have definitely seen my share of grief, loss,
and the anguish that goes with it but I feel this tragedy is beyond all else.
There is so little I can do to reach out to the people who have to live this nightmare tonight, but I couldn’t just sit around and do nothing at
all. I want to invite you join me in forwarding these families and the community in CT our prayers, hugs, best wishes, helping hands if possible, a
shoulder to cry on, ears to listen to the anguish, or anything we can collectively provide.
To start, I want to pledge my unceasing prayers, my broken heart, and a promise to remember these children always. I can assure you their loss will
never be far from my memory, and these families will therefore never have to wonder or worry that what was taken from them today will be forgotten.
These children will have an enduring legacy as long as I am alive on this earth.
Even though I live in Texas, I have very direct contact to the school and the community through a co-worker who has two young nephews in the same
school system. If you feel compelled, please contribute your support and condolences and I will see to it that our thoughts and compassion is sent to
them as soon as possible.
Our forum community can do a lot of things, so I implore you that we debate any issues elsewhere. Do this for the children and their families.
