I've got nothing

I've got nothing. 

I am so saddened by the shootings in Colorado.  I am stuck to the various news broadcasts to find out what is going on. 

The Baby is on her way to see the Batman movie as I write this.  I want to scream, NO!!!!  I want to stop her and protect her.  I am afraid something horrible will happen to her.  My life would never be the same.

Those of you who are parents, understand.  Those of you who are Aunts, Uncles, Sisters, Brothers, Friends understand.

I wonder sometimes what is happening to the people in this world.  How have we been driven to this place.   To the place that killing is the norm.

More than that, how can we stop it.

I will sit in fear until I know The Baby is safe.

She will be home for a couple of weeks before she goes back to college for her Senior year. 

I will hold her tight and tell her I love her.  I know she knows this, but I will make sure that every cell in her body is aware of my love for her.

Take care everyone.  Let your children know you love them.  Let your partner know you love them.  Let your parents and friends know you love them.

I love all of you, my bloggy friends.  Take care and be safe.

Pin It Now!

We got the news reports about the Colorado shooting tragedy here as well.

Normal people going about their normal lives cut down by a senseless act. Something fun that turned into something evil.

My thoughts are going out to all the people and their families who have been affected by this.
