In a situation like this, it can be so hard to know what to do. Lacking other practical options, and having no way to protect those who have already been harmed, it can be easy to be overtaken by intense anger and other destructive emotional states.
As a mom and citizen, I have many prayers. Beyond praying for peace for those who have lost a child or loved one, I pray that these lives are not in vain. I regret that it has had to come to this and I pray that the Newtown tragedy becomes rock bottom for us.
