|Vigil at St. Rose Church in Newtown|
It's hard for me to wrap my mind around why someone would do such a horrible thing. Why would anyone kill 20 innocent children and 6 educators and his own mother? How can anyone have such hate in his heart? He obviously had a disturbed and troubled mind, but we probably will never know why.
Newtown is the quintessential New England town, best known for the huge American flag in the middle of its main intersection, the graceful Victorian and Colonial homes lining Main Street that are always so beautifully decorated at Christmas, the garden tours in the summer, the big Labor Day parade down the center of Main Street, and now it will be remembered for this. How sad!
I was on the verge of tears all day yesterday and my heart is very heavy today. My thoughts and prayers go to all involved.
