Not one of us can say that we know what each day will bring as it starts out. Every day of our lives, no matter how much we plan, can be full of the unexpected. As the events of the past week have shown us this, unfortunately, is sometimes tragic. Quite honestly, my heart is broken over what happened in Newtown. When I think about what occurred, I think about a young man who must NOT have felt loved. People who feel loved don't do things like he did. It saddens me tremendously that a void of love may have made him feel that he wanted others, who had so much love in their lives, to suffer so greatly. It will take a long time for people to recover from this event. Despite this, today I am full of hope. Hope that the enormous wound that that young man has left behind, will eventually heal. And it will heal with love because love is the most powerful force on earth. Love gives us all hope. Love heals everything.
