Revelation: The Innocent of Sandy Hook


There are certain things that you will remember for the rest of your life, even if you do not want to.

Where you were when it happened….

What the sights and smells were…

Who you were with…..

How its impact punched the air from your gut.   The leaden weight of it making the horror feel like a canon ball wrapped around your neck.

Events like what happened early Friday morning make everyday life feel maddeningly insignificant and terribly vital all at the very same time.

As much as you wish you did not know it, and as much as you wish to shut out the outside world so as to not have to hear it, contemplate it, or have it stain the fabric of your life… it can not be deterred, deferred, or denied.   It’s tragic imprint too catastrophic to ignore.

Biblical proportions will bring us to our knees for prayer..

“Oh God, sweet Jesus… why?!!”


They are the innocents… their very existence the walking breathing proof of miracles.  Each day they reflect the love and joy and wonder of all that life can be…. so what does an event like this want to reveal to those of us whom they’ve left behind?

    I know. I know. We need much tighter gun laws for one and to also remember that in most of our lives- the things and people that annoy us, the yearnings, our small and large troubles, are very, very small in comparison to this tragedy. I cry for the victims and their families and for all those tender young children who witnessed what they certainly will never be able to forget.

    As Obama just said, “All across this land of ours, we have wept with you. … Newtown, you are not alone.”

    Hold your dear ones tight and not just for a second or two, but until you both know it is one of the longest hugs that you’ve ever had.

    Thank you for your comments and the thoughts.

    I believe that the pen is mightier than the sword. Several bloggers are encouraging others to send cards and letters to the school. Here is the address:

    The school’s address is:
    Sandy Hook Elementary School
    12 Dickenson Drive
    Newtown, CT 06482

    God Bless.
