Light A Candle

I don’t know if there are enough words to express the horror, the pain, the outrage over what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Children, gone before they had a chance to live, cherished by their families, gone.

Adults, brave in the face of horror, trying to protect the tiny lives entrusted to them.

Mothers, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers. Loved and cherished, every one of them.

Last May, I spoke to Dustin by phone. I told him I loved him, and how much. The next morning, he was gone.

Now is not the time to be afraid to express your feelings. Now is not the time to put off saying “I love you.” No one is promised tomorrow, so make the most of Now. You may not get another chance.

Hug your loved ones tighter. Be honest about how you feel. When faced with the ultimate horror, all other fears pale.

“People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Go, and glow for someone today.
