There are no words....

I am absolutely heartbroken about the horrific tragedy in Connecticut today. As an elementary school teacher, my heart hurts for the poor kids, teachers and staff members who lost their lives today. NO one should ever ever have to go through something so horrible and senseless. I feel so bad for their families, the other teachers, and the precious, innocent children who witnessed such horrible things. This is literally every teacher and parent's worst nightmare coming true. Ugh. I can't imagine going through something like that--how scared the kids and teachers must have felt and what horror they must have endured--what a frightening devastating experience that must have been for all involved. 

I really wish I hadn't had to take off the school day today for a medical procedure because I so wanted to be with my students today and have been able to give them each a hug, high-five, pat on the shoulder--something to remind them that I care about them and I'm there for them...kids need as much love as possible during times like these. :( 

I know I will be constantly praying for the families and the community as they deal with the aftermath of this event. Heartbreaking. :( :(

I'm not a teacher, but the same thoughts have been in my mind today.
