There Are No Words…

This post is late…nearly 24-hours late, but to be honest I simply couldn’t bring myself to finish it any earlier.

Each time I sit down to type, my eyes feel with tears and I am at a complete loss for what to say about the horrible tragedy that occurred in Newton, CT., on Friday. I find myself repeating the thoughts of so many individuals on the news who’ve simply said, “there are no words.”

Perhaps my inability to pull together the “right words” is the reason that I have gravitated to the words of Robbie Parker, whose daughter Emilie, was among the victims. What an incredible example of Christlike behavior and an interest in looking for the light in all things…

I still do not have the words to express all that I am feeling, but I am motivated to be better, to show gratitude, to love where I can…
