I found this devotional in my reading this morning and found it expresses my feelings exactly.
Each new life, now matter how brief, forever changes the world.
Little smiling faces; brightly trusting eyes and eager personalities, what is not to love with each new life? The impact of a tiny life overflows the hearts of loved ones like nothing else in life. Our collective hearts carry some of the sorrow for those who lost a little one. Pulling together in times of distress strengthens the weary and makes way for hope.
My heart and prayers go out to to all families who have lost a child in school shootings or any other dreadful way.
