Angels Wept

"We cannot let tragedies define us. Let it be something that inspires us to be better, to be more compassionate and humble people. Let us please keep the sentiments of love that we feel for our families, and the compassion that we feel for others - even complete strangers - and keep them with us at all times, not just in times of sorrow and tragedy. And may we do this so that we can better all of our communities, and all of our cities and all of our states, so we can make everyone, everywhere in this country feel safe." - Robert Parker, father of Emilie Parker, 6 killed at school in Newtown, CT.
We were blessed to have you among us for too short a time.
We will never forget you.
