A Sandy Hook Memorial

I meant to post this on Saturday, but with the little one being sick, time just got away from me.

I hope each and every one of you took some time to cherish the loves in your life and remember these lost lives on Saturday. For me, not a day goes by that I don't think about all of them.

You see, as a teacher, I took this especially hard, considering it had nothing to do with me. I told the hubs that I would absolutely have been the one to stand and protect my kids......from the madman that walked in with the intent to kill. And that terrified me.

Please take a moment to remember these sweet babies and the adults who tried to save them.
