Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes
feeling sad & helpless - sitting 9000 miles away
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families who have been hurt.
Sitting in Bangalore, India - 9000 miles away from the USA, i feel helpless -
how can i help out - how can i console the families, the world wide web has helped me to write this story through CNN - and I thank it for at-least allowing me to post my views.
But still - a sadness engulfs me - If, i could just be there - to provide any assistance to the families.
I do not even know the victims and their families , but I know its hurting - hurting real bad - i feel the same.
The world will never be the same for many people.
I will end this post with words of Abraham Lincoln:
" I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming.
But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation"
"I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost"
thank you and may god bless.
