Sorrow

Sorrow makes us all children again, destroys all differences of intellect. The wisest knows nothing.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

As a mother with young children similar in age to those who were in today’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, my heart is filled with sorrow for the families touched by this tragedy. Ever since I had children, I can barely keep a dry eye whenever I hear tragic news, but when it involves children, I just can’t make sense of it. My heart is heavy. My thoughts and prayers are with all the people in that town today. I’m so sorry.
