Words Cannot Express...

The sadness that my heart feels for those affected by the senseless tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary on yesterday, keeps the tears flowing from my eyes.  My heart aches for the families who have suffered a tremendous lose of their babies who were just beginning their journey.  I pray that GOD would grant them peace and that they would find comfort and solace in HIS arms.

So, to show our support for Sandy Hook Elementary, fellow bloggers will honor them with in a moment of silence tomorrow.  Thanks to Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for organizing this.
Head on over to Oh Boy 4th Grade for more details.  Keep Sandy Hook Elementary in your thoughts and prayers!!
