Sometimes I turn the TV on during the day, while I'm folding laundry or picking up toys or cleaning the kitchen, just to help pass the time....and today I instantly found myself glued to the TV, forgetting about all that needed done. As I heard about the mass shooting in Connecticut, at an elementary school, with 20 children dead , my stomach turned to knots and tears streamed down my face. I don't understand how things like this happen.....how someone can be so mentally sick that they can get to the point of performing such horrific acts of violence.
With Christmas songs running through my head, I just wanted to end with this:
And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men."
