Pray for peace

I feel such a sadness after the terrible news of the children in Connecticut. I don't think I've ever heard of anything so terrible, so devastating happening to children. It is sad for everyone really. For children to lose their lives in this way, beautiful little children whose bright, happy spirits undoubtedly brought everyone such joy and happiness. It's just imcomprehensible. The young man who became so totally lost affected millions of people though. The world is not the same. I pray that we will stop this madness by standing up for a more peaceful world. A world without guns and violence. A world where we try to help people more who are feeling lost and confused. We cannot let things like this happen in our world. Beautiful children and adults who showed such incredible bravery. I just pray for everyone that somehow we can heal from this terrible tragedy. But for now, it is so difficult to act as if life is normal, because it is not. We need to make things better, to show more love and try to judge less. We are all children really. God would want us to love one another. Isn't that why we are here?
