Before we get into more of our regular posting, I felt compelled to say that all our hearts go out to the families who were affected by the tragedy that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut on the 14th.
In general I like to keep posting things in the "real" world to a minimum here, but this is an incident we're all having a hard time shaking. Raising kids is such a combination of love, hard work and sacrifice that to even think about losing a child is painful enough, for it to actually happen is utterly incomprehensible -under any circumstance.
When things like this occur, the question is always "why". There is no acceptable answer that will ever make any sense, but we'll try to love our little ones even more than ever before, in dedication to the 26 people that lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday morning.
