Newtown Tragedy

I know this is a running/travel blog and not current events, but it is hard to not say something about what happened yesterday. As a parent of children near that age, it makes me feel numb to think about being in that situation. I have so much sorrow and sympathy for every single person touched and affected by this tragedy.  Those families are in my prayers throughout this time and beyond.

I do not know if any of our readers were impacted personally in anyway, but if there is someone here that is related to anyone in this tragedy, I would like to be able to help you get there to be with your family/friends. Please contact me if I can be of help in getting you to Newtown. I will donate the miles needed for a domestic ticket for one of you that is involved in this. Please know that you are in my prayers.

For everyone else, if you have children, hug them and appreciate them a little more for the time that you have with them. I know I am so grateful for my little ones.
