To everyone whose heart aches for our children who have been lost . . . and to those who continue to face possible danger when they step into our schools; to all who have said yes to making their life's work the educating and safe care of our children: take a moment to let your hearts smile and be grateful for the valiant capacity of the human spirit to give joy to others.
Please take a little time to let yourself step away from the chaos of our latest mass horror and celebrate with these teachers as they give love and carefree joy to their students.
I wish you all the grace of deep peace. Take courage in the knowledge that you are not alone.
