A Heavy Heart



 
 
Like all of you, I am deeply saddened by the shooting in Newtown, CT. While I didn't plan on posting about this today, it has been heavily on my mind. Each time I turn on the TV it is a reminder of the pure disbelief we are all in of the current events. I am not yet a mother and cannot fathom how those parents must feel, especially at this special time of year.
It is beyond me why someone would take so many precious innocent children's lives so tragically.  
 
Although there seems to be more tragedy than good that is in the news, I urge you to BE THE GOOD.  We all have good days, bad days, and just okay days. Through hearing about tragic events such as these, it makes me want to go home and hug my family a little tighter, enjoy the little things, and make each moment meaningful....for one day you will realize these little things were the most special times spent together.

On Tuesday, December 18th, there will be a blogger day of silence.
We will post the button and that's it. Please try to not post anything else that day if possible.

We are also raising money that will go to an organization in the memory of this tragedy. The organization is called The Newtown Family Youth and Family Services. Here is the official description of the support service we are donating to:

"Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. is a licensed, non-profit, mental health clinic and youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve their highest potential. NYFS provides programs, services, activities, counseling, support groups and education throughout the Greater Newtown area.

ANY DONATIONS MADE TO NEWTOWN YOUTH AND FAMILY SERVICES WILL BE DONATED DIRECTLY TO THOSE EFFECTED BY THE SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SHOOTING."

Please visit THIS PAGE to make your donation.

We can't imagine how they must be feeling, especially this close to the holidays. We would love for you to spread the word on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Let's make a difference and use blogging in a positive way. Thank you in advance for participating.

Love,
The Blog World

p.s. If you would like to, copy-paste and repost any part of this, please do. Share on.

  1. This saddens me as well. I'm not a mom yet either, but I am an aunt to a beautiful niece the age of these kids and I can't imagine losing her. It's so sad. Thank you for your beautiful words!
