Newtown teddy bears for the fallen

Children are meant to out live us and tragedies such as this one in Newtown, Connecticut have really hit everyone hard. I cannot imagine anyone not having their emotions turned upside down after hearing about the nightmare that the children and staff of Sandy Hooks elementary went through. There is no making sense of such a tragedy, these children were taken before they even had a chance to live.

I will never forget Barack Obama's quote from yesterday's memorial "being a parent is like living with your heart outside your body all the time" Never have their been truer words...

Newtown you are not alone, the world grieves with you....Let us all remember....
