Hurting Hearts for Sandy Hook Elementary School

14 Dec

It feels like just yesterday I was sitting at my computer trying to find words to honour the lives of those who were killed in the mass shootings in Colorado and the Toronto Eaton Centre. My last blog post was entitled Senseless Violence. Today, the word senseless does not even begin to describe what happened in Newtown, Connecticut.

I was at the computer doing some work when I opened Twitter on my phone. The cryptic tweets led me to quickly look at the trending topics. All the while, I was hoping that there was some kind of mistake. Needless to say, that was not the case.

As I am sitting here writing, I cannot find words. Hurting hearts is all that comes to mind. Today the world mourns the lost lives of innocent children, who had their entire lives ahead of them, and educators who dedicated their lives to these children.

There are so many emotions I am experiencing as a teacher’s college graduate and a member of the Ontario College of Teachers. There are so many more emotions that I am feeling as a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, and as a friend. My heart aches for everyone who has been affected by today’s tragedy.

This is a short blog post simply because I have no more words. I truly send out my thoughts and prayers to the loved ones of all of the victims and hope that you can find some peace in the coming weeks and months.
