By now you've all heard about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. I don't even know all the details. James turned on the news briefly and I started crying so hard that he turned off the television. I tried sleeping, but my dreams were filled with images of innocent children being slaughtered. My daughter. My daughters friends. It could have been her. It could have been them. As a parent, as a human being, it is unfathomable.
So tonight the only advice I have is probably a conclusion that you've already arrived at yourself. Hug your babies close and pray hard. As beautiful as life is, it can be just as tragic. No one is promised tomorrow, so you make sure that today and every day you tell those who are important to you just how much you love them.
