Hearing God’s Call
The school shooting in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six staff members of Sandy Hook Elementary School were killed last week, is a tragic reminder of the sanctity of life. Of promising young lives cut short and the uniqueness and preciousness of every single person.
As a mother of two, I try to imagine the grief of the parents of the dead — it must be overwhelming and all consuming. Just thinking of the tragedy leaves me with a heavy heart, tears in my eyes and the feeling that I need to lie down before I faint.
Unfathomable horror. Unimaginable grief.
