A Day Of Teacher-Blogger Silence
It is difficult to put into words the utter shock, disbelief and sadness of how I feel about what took place yesterday in Newtown, Connecticut.
As a mother, grandmother and fellow elementary teacher, I share your pain; my heart aches for everyone.
My thoughts, prayers and sincere sympathy goes out to all of the broken hearts reeling from this senseless act of violence, that has touched hearts around the world, and left everyone wondering how such unspeakable evil could befall the sweet and innocent lives of children, and the people who dedicate their lives to teaching and caring for them.
To honor and respect the families and community involved in this tragedy, I will be joining many other teacher-bloggers in a day of blog silence, Sunday, December 16th.
"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief... and unspeakable love." --Irving
