heavy heart.

this morning, a 24 year old man shot up an elementary school.
at least 20 innocent beautiful children, and 6 gracious adults.
children who had their whole lives ahead of them. adults who made it their job to educate the youth and keep our children safe.

{he also shot his brother at his home in NJ, before driving 80 miles or so to the school, where he shot his mother, a school teacher - and the others. then himself}

what is the world coming to when you cant do anything to keep your child safe anymore?

there have been a ridiculous amount of shootings this year. inside malls, inside hair salons, movie theaters... and now inside elementary schools.

im not going to get into the gun situation, because to be honest - after that theater shooting in colorado, i wanted nothing more than to have a gun of my own. i couldnt help but think if i was sitting in a movie theater and someone came in with a gun to start shooting, if i had a gun of my own, what would i have been able to do to save others or stop the shooter? purely self defense. & thatll never change. but i cant believe they dont pay more attention to who they hand a gun over too.

as a woman who hopes to become a mother and raise children in this world, how can i even explain those emotions? how can anyone who is a mother?

i dont know where our generation went wrong. but i am so afraid to send out my future children into a world with this much violence.

viewers around the world are crying in sadness. our president, Mr. Obama himself, is crying in sadness.

my heart is so heavy for the world today. soggy for those in connecticut.

Lord, please help our world. we need the restoration that only You can bring.
praying for all of those affected in these tragedies.
