  • It is 1 am here. My DD is wide awake and as am I but, I don't think I could sleep if I wanted to. I keep looking at the presents under the tree and thinking about all of the families who no longer one of their children to open them on Christmas morning. My heart is breaking. I just can not completely comprehend this. There has been so much violence this year. 4 days ago a mall near my home was terrorized by a gunman, 3 dead. then the next day there was a rifle found at a high school just up the street from me, I could see the swat helicopter from my front porch. Now this. What is wrong with the world today???

  • It's 10:00 here and I think the tragic event of today will be engraved in our minds for a very long time.

    A lot of tears and heavy hearts!

  • It's hard for me to even think about what those parents are going through. I have to talk to my kids before they go back to school Monday and the idea of even speaking of it is so uncomfortable to me right now.

  • 6am here. I slept like a baby. That doesn't mean I feel for those poor parents that lost their kids.

  • I'm awake too, everyone I know has been overwhelmed by this news. We all share this horror. I don't know what to do with my feelings...I keep praying...and I'm not much of a praying kind of gal.
