Just in December I wrote an emotional post about the Newtown shootings. Only 4 months later, here I am again. Sitting in my chair in profound sadness about yet another tragic event, this time so close to home… in Boston.
I can not and do not even want to express my emotions into a post at this time. My feelings continue to be the same as in December. My heart cries for a family that was celebrating such a great achievement: a dad showing his family he could run a marathon if he really tried. And a wonderful, energetic, and cheerful day, ends in such deep pain. With an 8-year-old that passed away, a mother with severe injuries having brain surgery, and his little 6-year-old sister in the hospital after loosing a leg. What profound sadness for this family and all the other victims and injured.
If you have children that are talking about this or asking questions about what happened in Boston, I will share with you a resource found this morning about how to talk to your children about what happened yesterday – click here. You can also follow my Facebook page where I post more regularly small news and information relevant to children and parents.
I would just like to share a great quote that I found this morning. I thought it was a great thing to hang on to in a moment like this. Do your best to find your inner peace… even on sad, turbulent, painful days like these…
