I woke up early this morning to a grey sky and rolling thunderstorms and rainy downpours. I didn't need to be up for a few hours, so I thought it was a perfect time to do a bit of in bed hooky, such a luxury!
Then I put on the radio to hear what was happening out in the big wide world, and I hear of the terrible massacre of little children in America. At a school, little children just going about their young lives, sent off in the morning as a normal everyday happening, and then a normal day turns haywire.
One can only imagine the pain and grief that the families and community are feeling at the moment, I feel so sad for them all, it is really too much to comprehend.
In this day and age of the internet and our global community, tragedies like this feel much closer to home than the geographic distance that separates us.
We are all in this life together after all.
Sending big hugs to all you lovely readers, especially in America, I think you'll all need an extra one today.
