There are simply no words. Or rather – I haven’t found the right ones.
Red and black ribbons have shown up on your mailboxes, in the colors of The Covenant School. They say to me “we grieve together.” They say to me “I’m shocked too.” Maybe a few of them whisper “I don’t know what to do either.”
They’re kind-of helpless, those ribbons. But they aren’t hopeless. They feel like you talking to me when we can’t find the words.
Thank you, neighbor. Thank you, friend.
Thank you, Jennifer, for these photos, reminding us of how much all of us are still grieving in the wake of this horrific event. One minister at the Mayor’s vigil prayed that as we move forward we might have the courage at last to make a change.
Thank you so very much, dear Ophelia. Xoxo
Jennifer. Such a sweet and simple post but the pictures say so much. We are a community experiencing devastating loss and tremendous grief. No family should have to live through Monday’s massacre but, here we are. Prayers that the children we have raised are strong, collaborative, determined, and ready to bring about change for the next generation.
God’s mercy on us all and prayers for peace, comfort, and strength for these six broken families.
Thank you for your beautiful, beautiful words, Katie. They are such a blessing to me this morning. Xoxo
Thank you for this.
O think you found just the right words, Jennifer ❤️
Wow thank you, Anne. Xoxo
so many of us feel helpless but not hopeless, and I think that hope is a spur to action. thank you for your post. xo
I pray that these ribbons that express sympathy and solidarity lead the powers-that-be to consider meaningful gun reform.
❤️. Beautiful, Jennifer. As always.
Thank you, dear Daphne- I miss you! Xoxo
