This morning at 9:30 there will be a nationwide moment of silence to honor the 20 beautiful children and six heroic educators that senselessly and tragically lost their lives last Friday.
I haven't posted anything about the tragedy because to be honest, I have a hard time thinking or talking about it without tearing up. From the moment I was made aware of it (by a text from a friend as I was leaving my grandmother's funeral) I have had a knot in my stomach and those 26 souls have not been far from my mind.
I pray for peace and comfort, for them and for their families and loved ones. The pain their survivors must feel is unimaginable. I can't even let my mind go there - it's just too much.
And now I'm crying again...
