My Heart is Broken

I sat today, horrified, as the events in Newtown Connecticut unfolded, and my heart broke on hearing the news that a gunman killed TWENTY children, among others. This act of hatred and true evil by an evil coward literally broke me down. I cannot try to put myself in the place of the parents who lost children and I don’t want to, I am already in pain and my heart is broken. I will post something from a man that I admire, Abraham Lincoln, that has offered me little comfort, but it’s all I can think of at the moment.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost.

I guess they are nothing but empty words to somebody who has lost their child to this act of evil. But I will hug my child tonight and tell her I love her, and hope that it’s enough to make me forget. God bless those families who lost a child. For whatever it’s worth, my heart goes out to you.
