My heart and soul are beyond hurting for all of those involved in the horrific shootings in CT. The more details I read the more my stomach turns and the more my heart sinks. I have a daughter the same age as the victims and I can’t even begin to image something as gut wrenching as this. Tonight in remembrance of the victims we lit a candle for each of the victims and said their names in our hearts as each flame was lit. I encourage you to do the same if it helps you to heal and grieve for these precious lives taken too soon. The name strips of all 26 victims I used are here, wrap them around a votive, make a chain from them or do whatever helps you remember, grieve, heal… RIP sweet angels— may your light shine down from above on all those who are grieving.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
