I have zero desire to debate anything about this right now (like, gun control, or whatever usually comes out of these debates), but I just wanted to say that my heart is breaking hearing about the elementary school shooting in CT. My thoughts are with those families that have lost loved ones today. I can't even wrap my head around it.

We are In the car heading to dc and the news has me sobbing. My mom put my son on the bus to kindy an hour ago and all of my being wants to turn the car around and hug my sweet boy. I'm just holding space for those poor parents and holding them lovingly in the light- my heart breaks for them.
I'm just so sad and i don't understand...i just don't. I get to leave soon to get my children, right now, i never want to send them back again. We are at the mercy of the people in our communities. Those families....thats all i keep thinking. Oh my god, those families.
That is so sad! Those poor families. Those poor kids.
All I want to do is go and hug my kids and be thankful that they are happy and healthy and safe. One of them is at school right now. I want to text her to make sure she is ok! (I am not going to cause that would be a bit much, but I still really want to!)
Heard the news that it was kindergartners this morning while in class, I could hear my kindergartner giggling through the wall. I really want to throw up. My heart is so broken for the families of all the people involved.

My son Rocco just turned 7 yesterday. He is in first grade and they are having their class party at school today, like these kids probably were getting ready to do. It breaks my heart.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
I cannot stop crying and am on edge waiting for my girl to come home so I can squeeze her so tight until she's ready to pop. This is an awful awful situation.
This stuff is so much worse once you are a mom. Knowing how quickly your child can be taken from you is heartbreaking.
I went to lunch to grab something, started reading some things on Facebook, and I seriously could not stop crying to come back into work. I had to call my husband finally so he could talk me down. It is just devastating. Obviously it would be horrible any time of year, but these families will never be able to enjoy the holidays again...this time of year will only ever remind them of devastation and loss.
