Seeking solace on this somber day in December. We will probably never understand why that boy in CT. took all those innocent lives. “Children need our presence, not our presents.” This quote gives me chills as I type. We need to look deeper, are we losing personal connections? How could this boy be so very disturbed, troubled, and lost to give this horrific act a fleeting thought. We need to build our children up; listen, really listen and respond to them attentively. Be strong parents, even on the days we don’t think we have it in us. Love, embrace, cherish, respect.
