Words Fail Me

Sometimes it is just too much. Today was one of those days. The loss of innocence. My heart goes out to the families. I can’t think of much else. I take little ones on hikes. Teach them the wonders of nature. Today, hundreds of them were subject to horrors that boggle my mind.

We live in Howard County. An upscale county, like Newtown CT. The unthinkable occurred there today. Watching the news, I also saw the lovely poinsettia, given to us yesterday by the boisterous exuberant school children who are my neighbor’s boys. Little ones, not unlike the little ones in Sandy Hook. This could happen anywhere. Sad, but true, and oh so scary.

Our prayers for the families.


About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
