Not since 911 have I stayed glued to the television set for hours on end, while I try to work through mostly the why’s of what has happened in Newtown, Connecticut. Could this have been prevented is one question that kept me up most of the night and what can we do to ease the pain of the families and the community of Newton, Connecticut was another. I suppose it’s too soon to fathom the reasons behind why any human being would want to hurt another, let alone children, but I guess no matter what their reasonings are, it isn’t good enough for me. I tossed around the idea of not voicing my thoughts about this traumatic event which occurred 11 days before Christmas, but the fact, I am at the moment consumed with pain and anger, I felt I needed to let it out. There is no doubt the nation will not heal from all this, slowly and eventually, but for now, we have to stop what we are doing and unite so we …
I can’t help but, like everyone else, notice everything Christmas, everywhere I go and during this time of year, it’s really difficult to think about anything else. 🙂

Can you see it below?
