the day the world stopped turning. the day that will change all of our lives forever. the day that we will mourn as a nation. as moms and dads. as sisters and brothers.
there are no words. i have no words. maybe because i’m one of those “never-can-think-of-the-right-thing-to-say-at-the-right-moment” kind of people or maybe just because THERE. ARE. NO. WORDS.
but we, as a company & as a family, instantly felt the need to be off the grid digitally so to speak. no tweets (what?!). no instagrams. no facebook posts. i’m not sure why…it’s not social media’s fault that the world stopped turning. but for some reason, it just seemed the right thing to do.
we, like all of y’all, want desperately to help. we want to turn back the clocks. we want the families of newtown to be able to send their sweet babies off to school, with backpacks and lunchboxes, new crayola boxes & glue sticks and then to come home to stockings and letters to santa.
we want to close our eyes. stick our heads in the dirt.
but for now, we’re going to do all we know…we’re going to donate to the UNITED WAY …. and in the meantime, we’ll look for a time machine.
to newtown, connecticut…we send you our broken hearts full of love and prayers. we send you peace. we send you strength. we send you our tears. we send you healing.
Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. . . “
