Like so many millions of others, I feel heartsick about the horrible events of December 14 in Newtown, Connecticut. It’s impossible to understand how someone could be evil enough to shoot a six year-old once, let alone multiple times. The children and the adults who died trying to protect them are true angels. I hope their families and friends can eventually find peace, and they are all in my prayers.
This song has been running through my head for the last day or so. My sister had this record when we were kids, and I think it’s a fitting sentiment, one that so many of us are feeling right now. The slideshow is heart-melting. Words, particularly my words, are a poor tribute to those whose lives were stolen on Friday. I hope you’ll find that images and music do it better.
