White Mani in Memory of the Angels #Sandyhook #Newtown

Where were you when this unfortunate event happened? I just woke up, checked the internet, turned on the TV and saw the horrific news that made the world mourn. Today, as I watch one of the victim’s father spoke about his daughter, I can’t help but cry again. I am emotionally upset, my eyes are swollen and much as I want to turn off CNN, my heart can’t. We all have experienced loss of a relative or loved one, the pain is just indescribable. How can someone move on from this tragedy? Why these innocent kids? Why the heroic teachers? Why them? There are so many questions and most answers will probably remain in oblivion. In this moment of grief, may the Good Lord bless and comfort the bereaved families.

I would like to applaud the true unsung heroes of this tragedy- those teachers who protected their students from imminent danger. 

I pray that there won’t be any more incidents like these. 

I dedicate this white mani with stars to #Sandyhook #Newtown victims. Angels gone too soon.

xo,

Kathryne

    <3 There are no words. I had a hard time with my post. But the gesture, however small, just had to be done.<3

      That's true Gini. What happened was beyond everyone's comprehension. Around the same time last year, I lost a dear relative and it was hard to be in festive spirit. I hope with God's compassion, the victims' families can move on no matter how difficult it is… Thanks for stopping by

    Hey Kath, (Hugs) I can not watch the news any more, and the awful coverage of this kind of story is one reason. They are sensationalizing and commodifying suffering. If only our prayers would be answered and this never happen again…. I am feeling Gini's sentiment, I sat there and stared at a blank screen, kept deleting and retyping, but I finally posted it. I try to keep things light on my blog, but I felt the need to acknowledge and remember the victims.

      I agree with what you said. Hub also told me to stop watching for now. What fears me is somebody in his sickest mind will try to outdo this horrendous act. I hope and pray that there won't be any of these tragedies anymore. Hugs and kisses to you!xoxo

      Thanks for stopping by Arletta. It was really heartbreaking to watch the news. It's a shame that this isn't the first time students were killed in a place we all thought it's safe.
