We Mourn



We mourn the loss of life, innocence, families, friendships, futures, in this senseless act of violence against "our" children.

No words can express our sorrow,

Jeff and Sharon

I couldn't have said it better. We lived in Ridgefield, just a few towns over from Newtown. I can even fathom this senseless act against innocent children. Gentle thoughts and prayers go out to all the families dealing with this, XOXO

It's all very very sad. I have no idea what I would say to the families that lost kids today, but I share their sorrow.

Tragic. Heartbreaking. The lives of the parents who lost their children will be forever broken. The children who survived this horror will always be haunted. If our nation's children cannot be safe in an elementary school, we are not good caretakers. A very sad day for us all.

Love,
Susan and Bentley

My son, who is a high school teacher picked up his pre-school aged son early today because he just had to hug him. He called and was so distraught. It puts things in perspective....what's really important in life. So sad.....

Thank you for a welcoming spot to land a prayer. Time hasn't stopped this way in a long time. Not since my niece died. She was only 18 months old.
