Newtown, Connecticut is Every Town, USA Today

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone

Regardless of their ages & geography right now I want my three here with me so I know they are safe. It has always been a daily act of bravery & trust in a higher being that has propelled me at each stage to send my kids out into the world to live t

he lives they were meant to. Against every natural instinct & anxiety I keep reminding myself that my job was just to get them here, teach them & provide them with the tools they need to be who they were meant to be in the world. The hardest part of the job is knowing when it was time to get out of the way so their lives could become their own. Despite knowing & doing what’s right, there is always that small piece of my heart that never lets go. There is always the subtle fear for their safety.
Tragedies such as what has happened in Newtown, CT remind us how fragile life is & breaks our hearts not only as parents but as human beings. Each of these parents is living our collective worst nightmare, our thoughts & prayers are with them all. Also, thoughts & prayers to all of the adults who acted so bravely & selflessly to protect these children. May all of the victims rest in peace.
