I just saw an interview of the sister of Noah Posner, one of the little boys who passed away. Tears came to my eyes as I watched her talk about her memories of that day and what it was like on the day of college last year when her mom called and told her what had happened. She was trying to hold it together as she spoke, and you could tell her heart crumbled just to think about it. My heart breaks for her and the other many families of the children and teachers who were killed. A year may have gone by, but I am sure the pain has not lessened any for those who lost their precious children and family members.
I look at all of those beautiful souls who passed away that day as heroes. Victoria Soto is one of them. She is a hero to me. She was 27 years old and one of the teachers at Sandy Hook. She protected and hid her class and sacrificed her life to save them. Her courage and immense love for her students inspires and overwhelms me.
May all our prayers and blessings be with those who lost their loved ones on December 14th last year in Connecticut, as they deal with the grief and memories of one year ago today.
Hug your loved ones extra tight, remembering how much of a gift each moment with them is.
Have a blessed weekend!!
"The Lord is close to the broken hearted,
and saves those who are crushed in spirit"
