Tonight, I was planning on posting a Cooking Adventure for you. Had today been an ordinary, run-of-the-mill day I would have. Its all typed up and ready to post.
Today, however, wasn’t an ordinary day. Instead, it was a horrible one, one of the worst.
What has happened in Connecticut today has chilled me to the bone. I am so deeply saddened by the news of what happened to those poor children, those poor teachers…
What’s happened today makes me scared of the human race, of the fact that someone could be so selfish to take away all of those lives, especially at this time of the year, because of their inner pain, whatever it may have been caused by. The fact that this person needed to react violently and to do so towards innocent children, in a place that’s meant to be safe is unspeakably evil.
When I saw the mass of condolences and heartbreak that followed, I was reminded that in times of tragedy, we as people are still stronger together than apart. We can show great empathy and feel broken when someone we don’t even know has been hurt. It reminds me that there is still enough good in the world to at least push back at the evil that has been done.
Tonight, I only wish for a moment of silence for the 26 lives lost today. Prayers be with the families of those slain today. There can never be too many prayers said in the name of lost loved ones.
