Heartache

Today has been horrible. Tragic. Unbelievable.
 
When I heard early this morning there was a shooting at a school, my heart sank. Then I heard Newtown, Connecticut where my fiance (Tyler) grew up.... down the street.
 
Unbearable. My heart aches.
 
Ryan, the 24 year old brother involved was in Tyler's 5th grade class at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
 
This hits too close to home.
 
The families affected, the children who will never grow up, the community rocked.
 
What is happening in our country? What happened to Sunday School, and love, and peace?
 
I pray that our world finds God. I pray we find peace. I pray that the families, Newtown, and our country can find peace in the love of Christ.

No one deserves to lose a loved one.

Stay strong, Newtown.

I can't believe it still. I hugged all my students today. I am heartbroken and so devestated. I am praying

I can't believe it either! That people can do this at all, let alone to little children, still baffles me! I am so sorry to hear that it is hitting so close to home. It only makes it worse! I pray too that our world finds God! And that we find peace! And those families find some semblance of comfort! So sad!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe Tyler is from there. That hits way too close to home. Definitely keeping all involved in my thoughts and prayers...

Thinking of you, sweet girl! This hits too close to home for so many of us. It breaks my heart to know that so many innocent lives were taken far too quickly. God has a bigger plan for them all, and we can take solace in knowing that they are being welcomed into Heaven this week.
