No words can describe the horror, anxiety and grief that devastates us upon hearing about the school shooting in Connecticut. Parents everywhere reach out to our children, no matter how old they are, hold them close and tell them how much we love them.
The Horror in Connecticutt

I’m beside myself with irateness! Your acknowledgment has spared the world some sort of public rant (for now).
In his book, What’s So Amazing About Grace, Philip Yancey asks the question, “What do you think would happen if we tried to ‘out-grace’ each other?” I think that out-gracing might be the only hope the world has to make our schools and children bulletproof.
When I picked up my daughter from school I hugged her tight and burst into tears thinking of the little ones. She’s 17 but all I could think of was she’s my child and thank God she’s safe, for now…
On twitter a follower said: “Sadly it rolls around with tragic regularity.” We cannot let ourselves harden. We must feel each of these tragedies as if it never happened before.
I will try to out-grace you Chris. Maybe we can start something.
This has been a unbeleivable tragedy! If is spurs the passing of an effective gun control law it would soothe my sense of helplessness. My heart reaches out to the parents, siblings, friends of the slain children and the staff.
