I couldn't let this week pass without addressing the senseless violence that occured at Sandy Hook Elementary School last week.
This tragedy struck many hearts because all anyone could think was; "what if that was my school, my children or my sister, husband, wife, friend?"
Our collective hearts have been aching for those families and for all of the first responders that had to witness that.
It makes us realize that during this joyous time of year, those families will never see the delighted faces and cheerful squeals from their children again.
This is not the time for gift giving but it is about time spent with family. Young, old and the young at heart, need to hear how much you love them. Every day, not just on Christmas.
Hug your child, your grandchildren and tell them how proud you are of them.
