Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21
The outpouring of love was just unbelievable. Not only in the things you see here in pictures… but in words, strong, tight, loving hugs from strangers and a sense of knowing that everyone there needed one another.
Strangers asked us how we were doing. One woman came straight up to us and gave us an enormous hug without saying a word. A gesture that anywhere else would have seemed odd. Gestures that should become commonplace. Is there hope this event has changed us? Can it last?
When I saw these stockings I got extremely choked up. The thought of empty Christmas stockings next week made me feel ill.
A small tree was placed and decorated for each lost soul.
There was press everywhere. My friend and I think we may have been recorded more than once. It was a little difficult to grieve and cry privately when cameras were all around. I can’t imagine how hard this is on families. Families who need space and silence to mourn and be with loved ones.
Rest well little angels. And know that you will never be forgotten. I pray that your life will be the beginning of a beautiful new world where the focus is put back on the family, people learn to live with and love one another in peace and weapons and violence become something of the past. I pray.
