As the details are unfolding about the school shooting in Connecticut, my Mommy heart is so thankful that I snuggled and hugged Katya this morning before she went off. My heart hurts for the parents who are grieving right now, for the extended family . . . had they hugged and kissed their child?
I can't hug them and tell them in person how sorry I am . . . but I will hug Katya even tighter and harder when she gets home today, God willing. My heart is breaking for the families, the emergency responders . . . the rest of the school . . . No one should ever, ever have to live through this.
