Tragedy in CT

As I read the articles, watch the news and think about the tragedy that occurred today, my own children immediately come to mind. My daughter is in Kindergarten. She is still a baby--a bright little light in my life. Tonight, she experienced another first: losing her first tooth. The excitement in her eyes cannot be recorded in a book, but is forever imprinted on my heart. The innocence of a child is something we should covet and hold onto for as long as we can. I will never understand why someone would want to take that away from a child and rob them of all of their firsts yet to come. I just don't understand why these kinds of things have to happen.
