For the Children in Newtown, Connecticut.

I cannot bring myself to write a typical "Fashionable Cent$" post today on style, celebrities, or beauty. Those things are all fun, and I'm sure I'll be back at it come Monday, but today is different. Today we are each faced with a sobering reality.

I work at a desk that sits a few feet away from a TV that has CNN playing all day long. This morning when the news broke of a school shooting I was shocked. As details continued to come in regarding children, teachers, & deaths, the word shock became an understatement.

I have no words that I could write or say that could be adequate on a day like today. No words can bring the kind of answers or comfort that so many need.
There is just one thing I do know; today is not a day to begin entertaining questions & doubts, though I'm sure many of us want to. Today is not a day to turn our back on God, or on those who are hard to love.

Today is a day to come together, to draw closer to God, and to trust in the middle of the fear and in the middle of doubt. Today is a day to pray like you've never prayed before.
I pray for each family, for each sweet child, & for each person directly affected by this tragedy.
I pray there is a peace that passes understanding, I pray they feel our prayers from near or afar, &
I pray that God would heal our land.

Sincerely & with Love,
Angela
