There are only nine days to go before Christmas. Last night, I was feeling giddy and excited for the upcoming holidays. I was thinking of the break from school and time to be spent with the persons I love. Christmas is truly something wonderful to celebrate with families and friends. However, when I heard of the news this morning, my heart was broken into pieces. There were sad tweets filling my Twitter dashboard with hash tags #CTShooting and #PrayforNewtown. Then, I learned of the tragic Connecticut Massacre where twenty beautiful angels and six adults were killed. Suddenly, I found myself crying upon reading the different news articles on the web.
Christmas is fast-approaching and I can't believe that the victims of the shooting will not be able to experience the merry season. The little angels who passed away will no longer feel the excitement of placing socks outside their doors while waiting for Santa to grant their wishes. They will no longer have the chance to receive lovely gifts from their parents nor share sweet dinner with their families. I am saddened by the thoughts that those parents who lost their sons and daughters will not have a merry Christmas this year. They will be in pain for losing their beautiful little angels.
I wonder what got into the mind of the shooter. Majority of the 26 individuals killed were children. How could he murder these innocent kids and kill their dreams? The 20 angels are now in heaven. All their dreams are gone. Those who dreamed of becoming a teacher, an engineer, a lawyer or a doctor will never achieve it. The parents who spend sleepless nights to take good care of their children will now feel emptiness. These sad things are happening because of one heartless individual who took away the lives of his victims.
I am extending my prayers and love to all those who passed away. May you rest in peace. For the parents and families of the victims, may you have the courage to face these tragic moments in your lives. To be honest, I can't find the right words to say to you because I know nothing can ever ease the pain. Please have faith and believe that things will get better someday.
