I write this post with a heavy heart, as I am still deeply saddened by the tragic events that took place yesterday. I have been avoiding the news and keeping my social media usage to a minimum because I just can't stomach the headlines. I did see that some bloggers were going to post white manis as a tribute to the lives that were lost so I felt that I should as well.I know that this won't help the hurt but it's just a way for all of us to show some tiny bit of support.
We all need to ban together as a nation and stop the violence. Stop pointing fingers and start helping each other. Let go of all the hate and anger, instead open our hearts and our arms or I fear we are never going to have the peace that we need. Life is a beautiful gift and we should embrace it and be kind to each other. Everyone, please, remember to cherish your loved ones and yourselves. This should put the whole "reason for the season" into perspective for a lot of us. Be grateful for who and what you have because some of us are missing those things, and more importantly, their loved ones.
I dedicate this to all the Newtown angels, big and small, that God welcomed into his kingdom yesterday.
