A Moment of Silence

Friday morning I was working on a deadline. I worked, then went to lunch with some friends, and came back to do my post. Then I heard about the horrible massacre in CT. No post. A moment of silence instead. Sometimes silence is the best response along with quiet prayer, and if you are nearby, a hug.

Writing can help the healing process. For younger children, writing and drawing–let your child write about what happened if he or she is reluctant to speak. Read the writing . Ask questions. Hug a lot. Pray together for the families invovled and the children invovled, those still living as well as those who died.
