Purple headband shaped like a heart for the shooting victims in Newtown, CT.

I’m writing this post on December 16th, catching up from a busy month.  On Friday the 14th there was a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.  20 children died and six adults.  What a horrific situation.  As a father of 2 beautiful children under the age of 6, this news devastated me. It would have hit hard regardless, but this was an elementary school less than an hour away from where I live.  And these were young children around Anabelle’s age.

My prayers for peace and solace go out to the families and friends of the victims.  Nothing will ever return the children to their parents but I hope that if enough of us honor their memories, they can somehow live forever.

It’s too easy to obtain firearms in this country.  This has to stop.  Now.
