Last week’s tragedy made me realize that there are certain things I will never understand, nor would I want to.
I will never understand “why” or “how” someone could have such an absence of conscience that they’d go to such extremes.
However, what it made me feel and realize is that these unspeakable horrors show us something we can all choose to see.
We can choose to see how tragedy shines a spotlight on how blessed and fortunate we are.
We can choose to see that what is in front of us is not our immediate reality.
And we can choose to acknowledge that we must cherish those in our lives all the time as they can be taken from us without a moments notice.
You can let an incident like this create fear in you or you can allow it to open your heart. You can use it as a realization of how truly blessed you are, right now, to have your children safe at home and the people you love breathing besides you.
Innocence still exists within every single one us. Cherish the innocence in you and your children and tell them how much you love them.
