In a recent post, I talked about turning left instead if right and discovering new paths and outlooks on things. The weekend school started I came upon a row of newly planted trees on my running route. As I got to the top I found this memorial plague.
It stopped me right in my tracks and I had to cry. Overwhelmed with emotion and sorrow for those families it just took the stuffing tight out of me,but I threw it into my running and kept on. It took me three weeks to gather the courage to run that route again and come back to take these pictures and blog about it.
Children are so precious and parent or not, everyone felt a connection to the tragedy that happened at Newtown. The issues of gun control, mental illness, school security are all valid and need to be addressed but at the end of the day the world lost the opportunity to those little ones reach their greatest potential.
Everyday is our opportunity to celebrate the life we are given and to do it the best way we know how.
