And i'm sure every parent of the 26 little children were no different. There were dreams of tooth fairies, Santa climbing down the chimney, waiting to fill their Socks with gifts. Each child dreams..and every parent nourishes them.
Little did they know the horror that awaited them that morning.
I went into denial..I just couldn't get myself to watch the horror unfold. I just followed textual information. The images would haunt me. But it will forever haunt me. My heart goes out to all those families and friends who lost their loved ones, that day. I feel helpless and inadequate when I read such news. But I shall pray for them.
Adam Lanza's mother had no idea that she was seeing the son off with such rage and intentions. No mother does.
We know that no amount of words, prayers , service or gifts can take away the pain that they go through. But we as bloggers would like to reach out to them in our thoughts and in our prayers.
There are a lot of what could have happened, and what needs to be done. I know at some point of time, there should be a solution to such madness.
As a blogger, I would like to collectively participate in observing a moment of silence for the innocent victims.
“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.”
― W.B. Yeats, The Collected Poems
