I am finding it very hard to post right now. Like most of the world, I am stunned and heartbroken over the tragedy at Newtown, CT. As the Grandmother of twins who are in kindergarten, I am aching for the parents who have lost their children along with the other families who have lost loved ones.
My daughter-in-law brought the twins over after school today. I got to hug them, give them a big smoochie kiss and listen to their laughter as they played by the Christmas Tree. When I think of the twenty families that will never get to do this again, I can’t help but tear up.
One of my friends on Facebook posted this thoughtful quote from Maya Angelou:
Our country is grieving. Each child who has been slaughtered belongs to each of us and each slain adult is a member of our family. It is impossible to explain the horror to ourselves and to our survivors. We need to hold each other’s hands and look into each other’s eyes and say, “I am sorry.”
Please take a moment and listen to Clay Aiken sing two beautiful holiday songs. For me, it is like sharing a prayer with him.
I will be back in the morning, ready to smile and report all the wonderful news of Clay Aiken.
Please check back!
