A moments reflection

In response to the shooting in an elementary school in Connecticut this past week there has been a lot of conversation, argument, speculation, sadness, and anger.  I have opinions on issues like gun control, availability of mental-health care, the culture of violence, and other relevant issues.  But, that is not what I have been thinking about the most. Those are not the conversations I wish to engage in right now.  That isn’t where my heart, spirit, and thoughts have been.  I’ve been holding in my thoughts, in my heart, all those who have been affected by this.

My reflection….

For all the people this season, a time of magic and wonder, who are mourning the loss of a child.
For all the people this season, a time of family and laughter, who are mourning the loss of a family member.
For all the people this season, a time of laughter and friends, who are mourning the loss of a friend.
For all the people this season, a time of traditions and cookies, who are mourning the loss of a sense of security.
For all the people this season, a time to reflect on Peace and Love, who are mourning.
For all the people,
In this season of darkness, may we remember light.
In this time of sadness, may we remember the laughter.
In the time of tears, may we remember the smiles.
May we draw together, to hold and support all those in need.
