Another Senseless Tragedy

The only words I can think of to say are "Please pray for the families and friends of the victims of the Newtown CT tragedy."  There is too much sadness today

Don't ask, why do these things happen, for there are no "good enough" reasons, it is all just so senseless and tragic.

Hug your loved ones, tell them that you love them...now, not later. Spend time today making memories, don't wait for a tomorrow that may never come.  When these tragedies happen, turn to God in prayer, don't blame Him or ask why He allowed such a thing to happen, reach out your hands to those who are hurting, or to someone else in need and in turn you will make the world a better place.

May God be with all those affected by this tragedy and May He bring comfort, healing and peace to them as well.

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
