Blogmas Day 14: Newtown, Connecticut

Blogmas Day 14: Today's post is a sad post. These will be extremely rare here because I like to focus on happier things. This is not the post I had for today. That one will be up tomorrow. There was a school shooting in a Newtown Connecticut Elementary School today. These keep happening and yet each time I can't wrap my head around it. It's really quite horrific. Just thinking about what those families must be going through in the aftermath breaks my heart. This is just terrifying to even think about.

I kept my son home from school today because we're both ill, but now I'm glad I did. I know I don't live near that area (several states away actually) but I would have been a mess if he were in school.

If there are any relief efforts being organized or any places raising money for these families please let me know in the comments. I'll edit in whatever I hear about.

I know I can't makes this better for anyone suffering right now, but I am here to talk if anyone needs it. Other than that all I can advise is hugging your loved ones tight, have ice cream for dinner, and if you can, turn the news off and watch the happiest movie with your family that you can.

I'm going to go curl up with my son and watch the Winnie the Pooh movie.
