Gandhi peace buttonEvery morning since Friday I have woken up hoping that the senseless deaths in Newtown were a horrific nightmare.  After Jake’s and Sawyer’s deaths I had similar experiences.  The moments before I was fully awake everything seemed alright in the world.  And then an instant later it shattered.  Reality.  And, the world seems as if it is forever broken.

I so wish I had the right words but since I do not, I will again borrow wisdom from Gandhi.
