We grab for what is always there, but we always let go. Why? Sandy Hook

Why did Sandy Hook happen? My first thoughts. My second thoughts. Here are my third thoughts. I have yet to watch, listen, or read any Sandy Hook news. It’s been eight days since December 14, 2012. Here’s where I’m at:

The parents, relatives, friends, staff, neighbors – anyone who personally knew those 26 precious lives. What happened? Why?

And what did it do to us individually? As small town communities? As a nation? As a global family?

And what will become, if anything, of this?

West Side Middle School. Thurston High School. Columbine. Oklahoma City bombing.

My friend’s teenage Son, while sitting on his back porch pulled a pistol’s trigger as it was pressed against his temple.

What? Why?

I can only do this in small chunks…. tomorrow… more…

This is the third daily blog I write out of five, the fourth is about our contribution we make, in exchange for survival on our planet – click here.

Silent Happiness?

Silent Happiness?

Silence fertilizes the deep place where personality grows. A life with a peaceful center can weather all storms“. — Norman Vincent Peale

I find myself questioning Norman’s thought. Why? Because life is really difficult right now for many, many people. It’s so difficult and uncertain, that many of us, myself included, don’t want to admit it.

Therefore, I fall back on everything I know to be true. God never said it would be easy, He just said we would not have to go alone.

Peace and carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
