It is always sad when someone leaves home, unless they are simply going around the corner and will return in a few minutes with ice-cream sandwiches… except when they are not coming back… Ever.

I try to make my day and life a happier place here. Yet, today my heart is crushed and I can not NOT take a moment to offer my prayers and thoughts to the families, victims and community in the horrific Connecticut shooting. I mourn with you, America.
