I know I can't let what happened last week go unmentioned, but I just don't have the words as I'm sure is true of a lot of us. There is nothing more I can add that hasn't already been said, no personal experience or anecdote that would mean anything in a time like this.
I don't even feel all that right about sharing my own grief about the incident- as a human, as an American, as a mother- because it in no way can compare to what I'm sure is being felt elsewhere and I would never want to cheapen it.
But I recently read 2 articles written by lovely ladies with beautiful hearts and beautiful words and I echo many of these emotions and feelings. These are not my own words but these are my feelings
Rachel Held Evans- God Can't Be Kept Out
Amanda from Royal Daughter Designs- And Yet I Write
Casey from Casey Leigh- Feeling The Hurt
Know I am praying for the victim's families and our country in this heartache.
