This Week

Take time this week.

The horrific event in Newtown, Connecticut, defies human comprehension. Some reality of the horror will occur this week as the funerals begin for those taken from their families, homes and friends. What can we possibly do the help the people of this community to just get through this week? To get through that which we cannot possibly be understood?

We can take time out of our our lives this week and pray. Those of us who don't pray can take time out this week to hold a good and peaceful thought for those so senselessly lost. Pray for the innocent little angels who are no longer with us. Pray for those brave guardian angels who stood up to evil as soon as they recognized it and paid the ultimate price which is the measure of a guardian angel. 

Include in your prayers or good thoughts the parents, siblings, family and friends of those lost. The scares of this horror will be present with them for the rest of their lives. The time we spend this week doing this will in a small way show those in Newtown that we grieve for their loss, shed our tears for them and offer them hope for this week and all the weeks to come.
