Bloggers across the country are taking a day of Silence for the tragic event that happened on Friday. I still cannot get it out of my head. Sending my 7 year old and 5 year old to school this week has been hard. I just want them home where I know they are safe. I just cannot imagine what the parents are going through.
My husband talked to the principle at our school and he said they are working on strategies so this not happen. Why do we even have to think of these things. They should not happen!!! I cannot watch news streams about it or look at the pictures of the children and staff were killed. I just cry and cry.
Ryan and I have discussed if we should discuss this with the kids and right now, NO. I do not want them to fear going to school and scared somebody with a gun is going to shoot them. I am not sure I even have the right words to talk to them about it. I pray everyday for protection over my kiddos and everybody in that school. I pray for the parents of the victims that they somehow find peace through this one day. Those kids have the greatest reward and that is heaven and not suffering and happiness is all around them, no sickness, no crime, nothing.
There is not a moment that goes by that I do not think of that event and everybody that was involved in it. My heart hurts and I wish I could just go to Newton and give everybody a great big hug.
