A Sandy Hook Christmas

A town in mourning
No joy in this season of
Wonder, love, and light
   The children on the mantel
   Won't be here again this year.

    Dear Craig, This is particularly meaningful for those of us who live in Newtown. Though not personally involved other than friends with first hand experiences - teachers, grandchildren who escaped. Here we are, ever stunned. love, Kathy

    Craig, this is so... touching. What a sad situation this is, one that no one will forget. Thanks for your wonderful comment on my poem Aura Of Hope. Have a blessed Sunday. Hugs and love, Gail

    Who can ever forget such a tragic day? And on a holiday, especially, the mind and heart pours with tears for the families left with such a heartache....their hurt must be too unbearable. A story well told, Craig.

    I think for those families, Christmases will never be the same. Very nice tribute, Craig, one which acknowledges the pain that is still very raw, I'm sure. <3
