Today I felt exhausted ...yesterday was such a full day and busy little children kept my mind and heart busy. But this morning I was tired and watched the CBS Sunday Morning program...and of course they covered the tragic events that took the lives of 28 people on Friday. Believe it ...our Columbus Dispatch Newspaper published a headline on Friday..."Senate loosens gun control laws. " I do realize this problem is more than just gun control, but who needs rapid fire handguns and that rifle he used to spend rounds of ammunition in a matter of ten minutes. We have abandoned the mentally ill and left them for their families to control and deal with... until they break a law or hurt themselves or another the police cannot legally step in for assistance.
I did receive some beautiful news ...an old friend has had her first baby named Abby...she was born on 12/12/12... a new angel when a my angel friend has left this earthly home. I found some very cute onesies ...babies need at least a few changes each day. The family is coming home for Christmas and I cannot wait to hold this newest angel.
I just finished watching the inter-faith service to remember and honor the families in New Hope. Our president and the clergy performed a heart warming recollection of these victims of madness. I am praying for peace and some real, authentic conversations to find a fair solution to this continuing madness. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
