Today I came back from a meeting at work to hear that someone murdered children and adults at an elementary school in Connecticut.
My heart hurts so badly to know that someone could be so evil to kill innocent people, especially children. This school is 30 minutes from where I grew up in Connecticut. I have so many good memories of growing up in a safe, small town, and I can't even wrap my mind around how this happened. I talked to one of my cousin's this week who was thinking about moving to Connecticut with his wife and son and wanted to know how it was to grow up there. So much has changed in a few hours.
Please pray for the children and families affected today by the tragedy. Hug your loved ones tonight. If anyone is aware of ways that bloggers can help these people, please comment below so I can share.
O God, we pray for those who have been murdered on the streets of our city. We commit to your loving care those who have died, beseeching you to receive their souls into the mercy of your love. Comfort their loved ones who mourn. Enable them to meet the lonely and painful days ahead in the strength of your love. Let the love that you have made known to us lead us to create safer streets for all to walk upon. Amen.
