Normally December 14th is a happy day for me. You see it's my birthday. This year I was blessed to be able to spend a quiet evening at home with my husband and my three grown boys enjoying a lovely dinner. A dinner that had been prepared by the wonderful parents in my classroom.
But this year was different. I could not stop thinking about the families whose lives were forever changed. Families that could not sit down together at the dinner table. There are no words that can adequately express my sympathy for their loss. . . . My heart goes out to those families, teachers, and the entire community!
