Embrace Preciousness of Time and Life

How has your week been?
I’ve been thinking of you and wondering how you are. I’ve been numb and rather immobilized since the news of Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday.

My strong tenacious side wants to keep dancing, to not let someone else’s choices affect me and our community’s Joy… i.e.”don’t let this murderer kill our Joy along with the precious lives that were so horribly taken”…

My vulnerable compassionate side wants to honor these precious children and teachers, to give thought and prayers to their families, allow some sacred space/time in their honor and for healing.

Gov. Rick Perry issued a proclamation declaring a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012, to coincide with the Day of Mourning called by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy in memory of the 26 victims of last week’s tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
