I cannot imagine sending my little one off to school one morning….and not having him return home.
I cannot imagine such a heartbreaking, abrupt end to childhood birthday parties,
And snaggle-toothed school pictures,
And sleepy-eyed, tousled-haired Christmas mornings.
I cannot imagine another human robbing me of the opportunity to know my child as an adult.
I cannot imagine the pain in Newtown, Connecticut.
I can imagine those children in a safe place now, where they’ll never be harmed again.
I can imagine the people of the world praying for those who hurt.
I can imagine healing, albeit slow, for the people of Newtown.
And I can imagine all of us keeping them close in thought in the coming days.
