Monday Meditation: Newtown

17 Dec

I had some ideas for a couple of blog posts for the weekend, but after the horrific events that took place in Newtown, CT on Friday, none of them seemed appropriate. I could not bring myself to discuss running playlists or holiday races when such unbearable heartbreak had just occurred.

Of all the things I have seen, read, or heard over this weekend, the prophetic words of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the 1963 Baptist Church Bombing in Birmingham, AL stand out and still ring true today. So I will just leave with this:

My heart breaks for the children who were taken too soon, the educators who died trying to protect them, the families who lost their precious loved ones, and the community that has been forever changed. Sending healing thoughts and loving prayers for all those affected.
