I am without words. My heart goes out to families experiencing unimaginable grief in Newtown, Connecticut. I have gone from blog to blog reading what others have written and would like to share with you. Jen of Sewn Natural offered a beautiful quote:
You – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them…In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night…You – only you – will have stars that can laugh. (The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
Eileen of Little Acorn Learning lives with her family only a few miles away from Newtown and speaks first hand of some of the devastation. While nothing good can come from this tragedy, it is important to remember that there is still goodness in this world. In the face of this, she has started a project to search for goodness and light. Things right now feel very dark. What Eileen is proposing feels right.
