A Day Forever Marked
Another tragic day to mark on the calendar here in America – December 14, 2012.
Only 11 days before Christmas.
Do you think those kids opened their advent calendars this morning?
Do you think their moms gave them an extra long hug at drop-off?
Do you think they had sweet dreams last night?
Do you think they had written their letters to Santa?
I am thousands of miles from Connecticut.
But I am a mother of a little girl sitting in her kindergarten class right now, eating her pizza Friday lunch, oblivious to anything outside the walls of that precious school, nothing but a safe haven to her, and all the amazing treasures and gifts it has given to her.
And because of that, I mourn.
