Although I know that the families and friends of those that perished in the Sandy Hook massacre will not be reading this post, I feel driven to put my thoughts into words.
It is hard to look at a little child and not think back to the horror of that day last week when so many innocents lost their lives. To think of the teachers and others that put themselves in harms way to save their "kids". Teachers, administrators, janitors, lunch room workers, electricians and others go to work each day not expecting to risk their lives........
Has your view of our world changed? Have you paused to think what can be done to protect our schools? I'm afraid this is so complex that answers will not come easy but we must begin the discussion .....
To quote so many...life has to move forward and healing needs to begin - but they will never be forgotten.
- Crafty Girl and Red Hat Fun!
- Just a note about me - I'm a crafter wanna be:o) and am enjoying every minute that I can work in my craftroom (aka the Girl's room). Its called the Girl's room because my daughter (and other female visitors) usually stay in this room. And because our two cats that we call "the Girls" love to come in and visit me when I'm crafting - otherwise they are locked out - they just love feathers, glitter and lace! I'm a member of West Branch Creative Arts Association which gives me an avenue to meet other crafters and support art in our community. And, I'm a "card carrying" member of the Red Hat Society. I belong to the Foxy Ladies Chapter, the Incredible Hatters and the Bionic Babes - our main focus is FUN and that's very easy with these ladies! Since retiring November of 2011, I can't believe how busy I've been - don't know how there was time to work!!!
