i see laura and i have taken the same path for this day. it was just the only way i could bear to go after such heart breaking news.


journaling:


they dropped their precious little ones off for school; like so many other days. i thought about my december daily page; like so many other days. we all went about our business; like so many other days. but this was not to be like so many other days. tonight there are presents tagged for those who will never open them. there are airplane seats reserved for those who will never occupy them. there are are christmas cookies waiting for those who will never eat them. there are hearts now empty that may never again trust in them. tonight there are the citizens of newtown connecticut. strangers to me this morning; filling my heart tonight. today i say a quiet prayer of gratitude; like so many other days.
