making sense of a senseless act

There's been so much talking this weekend. So much speculation. I don't know that we'll ever know why Adam Lanza did what he did, or if it could have been stopped--all the shoulda/woulda/coulda's will drive us insane because there isn't any going back and changing the outcome of the senseless shooting in Newtown. There's only dealing with the here and now and looking forward. There's only prayer and hope and rallying around one another.

Today begins an auction, with items donated by people in the publishing industry, to support Newtown Youth and Family Services. The auction opens today at 9:00 a.m. EST. 

Go to PubHeartsConn.blogspot.com to bid on items and do a little good for those who need reminding that they are not alone. We are not alone. Not as long as we stand together in remembrance of the lives that were lost, the lives that were lived.


Today I've hijacked Alex J. Cavenaugh's blog for the day!

  2. Thanks for promoting this event. In the middle of all the flaming political finger pointing I saw on Facebook over the weekend, there was a quote from Mr. Rogers about, in the middle of disaster, to look for the "helpers." Thanks for being a helper.
