Back to business as usual? How do we do that after the tragedy in Newtown, CT? I certainly don’t know.
For the past few days I have basically unplugged from social media, I didn’t watch the news on TV, I just read a couple of articles on our local news…I’m not in denial of what has happened…I just can’t watch the sensationalization big network news is making of this tragedy.
There’s just so much sadness. And my heart is heavy with sorrow for all the families with empty beds in their homes. I have 3 children, 2 of which are in elementary schools. Those kids, could have been my kids. All kids are our kids. I’m not making it my tragedy. But this tragedy in some way is all of ours.
How do we go back to life as usual?
I have struggled with whether or not it’s appropriate to be publishing blog posts right now. But I am going to. Because we can’t let evil win. We can’t let evil rule our lives. We have to honour lives lost by living our best lives. We have to live our best lives for our families. I want to, have to, continue to bring inspiration to you. To me. What ever way I can contribute to making the world a kinder, gentler, more beautiful place then I will do that.
So after much thought, and many tears I have decided to continue with my Christmas posts.
But please know that I don’t publish them lightly.
I remember what happened Friday. It’s in my heart.
I will remember, as I believe that we all must, that there is still goodness in the world.
We have to believe that to be true.
And we must let that guide our lives. Find the good. Contribute to the goodness.
Be kind to one another.
Love thy neighbour.
Have a light heart.
Believe in the good.
Live with honour.
Lift each other up.
Be a helper.
