After seeing so many posts today over the tragedies in Connecticut and China and dealing with some grief of my own, I decided maybe it would be a good idea to have a central page for people to post their needs for thoughts or prayers for whatever is weighing heavy on them.
Please no "gun control" stories or posts about the recent events. I know a lot of us have school aged children or close to it who are really hurting over the stories of the past day and it is too soon for such discussion so please, leave it out of here.
I will start. First, since it is on all of our minds, I would like to send my thoughts out to the families of the poor children in Connecticut and China and hope that they can find some peace in the midst of this tragedy.
Secondly, I am extending thoughts to a BG mom who just posted about a friend who has overdosed (I believe I read it correctly)
Third, a few days ago, a friend from high school was killed in action while serving in Afghanistan and leaves behind a wife who is expecting and a baby girl. Wes, I can't tell you or your family how sorry I am for your loss. You have consumed my thoughts for the past few days. I can't imagine what your family is going through. RIP Wes, thank you for your service and for being a wonderful friend.
Thank you for allowing me to post this. I have been feeling very low since Wes was killed and just needed to get it out.
