a moment of prayer

i don't really know what to say or how to say it, but at this point i'm sure everyone has heard the heartbreaking news. how anyone could commit such a horrendous crime i will never understand. all i can think to do is pray for that man's soul and pray that a crime like this will never happen again.

the sad reality is this isn't the first (or even the fourth) time something like this has happened in my lifetime, but i find the news weighing a little heavier on my heart this time. you see, this time i am a mother. and it literally causes me to break down sobbing to even imagine that one of those 18 innocent children were my son. the pain it causes me to even think about that is almost unbearable, and so, my heart is breaking to pieces thinking about the poor poor mothers who found out today that their baby was murdered. 

i can't stop crying for them. 

for their tremendous loss.

so tonight i ask you to pause for a moment and say a little prayer.
a prayer for the poor innocent souls of the children taken too soon.
a prayer for mothers and fathers of those children, that they might somehow be able to cope with their loss.
a prayer for all the other victims and their families. 
a prayer for the sick man who caused all this pain, for his mother's soul, and for the family they left behind.
a prayer for our world, that crimes like this will someday cease to exist.

may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
