Tomorrow: a day of silence

I have copied and pasted the following and will participate in the day of silence tomorrow. This is a perfect response for me, because I truly have no words for the tragedy the people of Sandy Hook have been dealt. My tears have flown freely this past several days and that is without letting my heart and mind fully acknowledge what happened in CT for fear I may break and never be the same. My first thought is that everyone should just be silent. How dare we pretend to know what to say or how to help a mother or father whose child was just violently taken from them? Prayer and words of comfort can't be helpful, can they? For some, I suppose they can be, but for now, I will continue to offer my silence with a greater community.

On Tuesday, December 18th, there will be a blogger day of silence. We will post the button and that's it. Please try to not post anything else that day if possible.

We are also raising money that will go to an organization in the memory of this tragedy. The organization is called The Newtown Family Youth and Family Services. Here is the official description of the support service we are donating to:


"Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. is a licensed, non-profit, mental health clinic and youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve their highest potential. NYFS provides programs, services, activities, counseling, support groups and education throughout the Greater Newtown area.


ANY DONATIONS MADE TO NEWTOWN YOUTH AND FAMILY SERVICES WILL BE DONATED DIRECTLY TO THOSE EFFECTED BY THE SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SHOOTING."


Please visit THIS PAGE to make your donation.

We can't imagine how they must be feeling, especially this close to the holidays. We would love for you to spread the word on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Let's make a difference and use blogging in a positive way. Thank you in advance for participating.


Love,

The Blog World
