Tea for Shock, Sorrow
I just heard the horrible news about the school shooting in Connecticut, USA. I am so devastated for the children, their families, the entire community. I am heading to the kettle to make a strong cup of tea; it’s just what I do.
I should make some myself, my eyes are sore from crying.
First thing I did after crying was make a cuppa.
My heart hurts for these families and everyone involved.
Yes, me too. Such a horrific tragedy. As a parent myself, I can’t imagine the horror that those parents are going through, and I can’t seem to stop crying. So very sad.
Those little children, so full of life, during Chanukkah, right before Christmas, words can’t do justice to the horror and heart break. My mind just keeps going on a loop: the children who died, the children who witnessed the violence, the teachers and everyone at the school, and all the families and friends involved, the first responders, the police— the impact of this violence is more than I can bear.
i’m sitting on the cold cement floor out back at work way up in canada, feeling all the sad feelings with you.
It’s terrible what happened. Feeling very sad and angry. Those poor kids and their families, holidays are never going to be the same for any of them.
I’m in CT so this hits close to home for me, though this is a terrible thing to happen anywhere.
I don’t think my own words can properly address this tragedy, but I did post a couple of quotes for my friends and family today.
“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now
mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”
“I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”
