I usually try to do something humorous and generally a bit risqué for my posts, as well as relate it in some way to a writer’s life (and I’m gonna do exactly that), but I couldn’t without first acknowledging the horrible tragedy in Connecticut.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of those devastated families whose lives will never be the same.
On Sunday, December 16th at 5:00pm EST, I will be lighting a candle and sending love and prayers out to them and I hope you will take the time to join me…wherever you are.
Individually, lighting a candle may seem like a small gesture, but healing doesn’t happen overnight. It happens in painfully small increments over time.
Similarly…it’s the small gestures—like the glow of a single candle—that offer strength and hope and light in the darkest of times.
Pass this on.
Share it with your friends on Facebook
Stumble it! Tumble it! Pin it!
…and share it through any other social media groups you might belong to.
Let’s face it—Friday’s shooting has left its mark on ALL of us. It’s left us feeling hurt and helpless and at a loss to comprehend how something like this could happen.
We will probably never know the “why” of it, but it doesn’t matter at this point.
What DOES matter is that we survive it. That we move past the pain and sorrow and most importantly, that we cherish those we love and the time we have with them.
Because ya just never know how much time you have.
Candle. 5pm EST, Sunday, 12/16/12. Pass it on!
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programing.
