My heart goes out to the families directly affected by the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In addition to those families, my heart goes out to the countless other families directly affected by violence that don’t appear in the headlines, become a trending topic on Twitter, or become a photo made viral via Facebook. Social media takes over during the ‘big’ events, while many deal with this sort of thing on a daily basis. Love, light, peace, and strength are my prayers for the families.

Lenore–Decided to take a break from the tragic news on CNN and do some WordPress “tag Sufring” (“Photographers”). Was touched by your message and your photo, which is like a beautiful, quiet vigil.

Thank you for visiting, John R. I am glad you liked this picture. The candle jar was made by my youngest son. It seemed an appropriate picture for today. Sadly.
The light is lovely – the sentiment touching. Love this.
Coincidentally enough – the candle jar was made by Charlie in his art class. He brought it home from school yesterday. In a way, he created a light for the children.
It is better to light one candle…
Double deep sigh. With a hug.
One lit candle says so much more than words.
I agree, Sarah. The fact that my 6yr old made the jar makes it all the more meaningful, in my opinion.
Another horrible tragedy. My heart is with the families. Let us pray.

As my family faces a Christmas without Walter, my heart aches horribly for the parents facing the holidays without their children. Death sucks, Maxi. Regardless of the situation – death sucks. Period. I hold on to my faith like a beacon in the night. I am so very grateful for my faith.
Well said, my friend.
Thank you. These tragedies are horrid. Horrid. Yet some people live with this kind of sadness on a daily basis.
