I was in the middle of studying for my nursing final, when I heard the devastating news.  Having spent much of my childhood growing up in Connecticut, this incident hit very close to home.  No words can express the horror and disgust that I felt and continue to feel as the details of this travesty continue to emerge.  This post will be short and simple.  My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all the families and children impacted by this display of truly incomprehensible evil.  Make sure that you give your loved ones an extra hug today and tell them how much they mean to you.  This is an unfortunate example of how truly short and precious life is.  It is also a sad reminder that mass shootings are becoming an all too familiar occurrence in our society today.  Please join me in sending your thoughts and prayers to those directly affected by the shooting, as I cannot fathom the grief that they are experiencing.   A quote that I came across tonight could not have expressed my sentiments any better, “The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels tonight.”
