Incomprehensible Sadness

1 Comment

Little can be said today to bring any sense of understanding to the senseless act of mayhem that occurred today in Newtown, CT. My heart grieves for the parents and families of those little ones who lost their lives and for the spouses and families of the educators who were killed. Each time tragedy like this strikes, something despicable eats away at all that is good and right and wonderful in our world. With incomprehensible sadness we are left to pick up the pieces of lives shattered.

The thoughts and prayers of the entire Pasadena ISD community go out to the Newtown community in the days, weeks and months to come. It is my hope that every parent and grandparent in our own community will hug their children or grandchildren a little tighter tonight and let them feel your presence.

One thought on “Incomprehensible Sadness

  1. Good Morning Kirk,

    Sherry Meynier forwarded your message to me in regard to the tragedy in Newtown, CT. Your message was greatly appreciated. My heart has truly been with all the wonderful people in PISD since hearing of the terrible turn of events. Faces of those that worked along with me through the years and faces of the precious children that we all loved and worked with through the years have been running through my memory. My prayers are with you and the “troops” that are continually looking for and delivering what is best for children. Thank you and all the others in PISD for the diligence you exhibit in caring for the needs of childrem!

    Sincerely,
    Peggy Henson
