After I posted about Day 4 this morning, I was watching the news at lunchtime and heard of the heartbreaking tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. It almost seemed pointless to even think about gratitude when I felt such sadness.

But then one of the little boys, among the many in shock, said something to a reporter: after the students huddled in a closet of the gym, he said they ran into the fire house for safety and “were just happy to be alive.” As a child, I was lucky to always feel safe in my home, community and school — it’s devastating to imagine a world where even quiet towns can face such violence.

Sending love and prayers for strength to those children, teachers, family and friends in Newtown…
