Charging PT community to honor victims

I think it's a fair assessment to say that we're all shocked by the tragedy of what happened at Sandy Hook yesterday. What a horrible, horrible event. In light of that, I am saddened and frustrated by the attention / air time the shooter is getting and am completely sick over the media circus that's occurring in that community as a result of what happened.

My charge to the PT community is to choose the name of one victim and write it on your heart. Remember that name, that family, and that sweet baby's life. I charge you to pray for, send thoughts to, whatever you choose, to that family this holiday season.

I'm making it a point not to engage with the media sensation that's occurring and will not learn the name of the shooter. It's tragic what happened to him as well, but I refuse to give him higher "billing" than those teachers and students. I charge you with the same.

BoSox, that is a really wonderful idea. I'm printing out the list of names and putting them in my prayer book. (I added Nancy Lanza to the list.)

I don't want to look at the names...I've prayed for those families many times today. I can't imagine the heartbreak, the anger, the grief...

I watched the news this morning, and that's it. I wasn't able to watch yesterday as my VERY sensitive DS7 was with me.

I've prayed for all, and the brother of the shooter as well. He lost his mom and his brother in one day...

Prayers said for all,
Dee

GREAT idea, BoSox

Josephine Gay will be forever in my heart as she has the same name as my mom. And Rachel DaVino as my sister is named Rachel. I would much rather remember these names and honor their memory.

For Jesse Lewis and family. Not sure if it is a boy or girl but prayers are being said. I will pray for all families and friends and anyone who has had this happen to them. Praying for my good friend whose mom was murdered in a senseless manner similar to this tragedy. I am sure this brings all their memories back as well.

One of the children has the name (first and last) we've picked out for our little girl (when we have one). I'm sitting here bawling, yet again. I'll be praying for her family.

This is a lovely idea, BoSox.
I am not one to typically let news stories get to me. I, of course, grieve with our country when tragedy strikes, but this is so different. Perhaps it's because I'm a mother now, I don't know. I just can't stop crying when I read more and think of these little, precious ones. Reading their beautiful names breaks my heart.

I will be praying for Charlotte Bacon. May God and His angels wrap her in their arms. Rest peacefully, sweet girl.

Mary Sherlach, the school psychologist. May she rest in peace and know that others are picking up her work of helping students who are struggling. She will be remembered by all of the mental health workers ministering to those in need in the valley of the shadow of death.
