~Dear God~

Dear God,

Thank you for another year of life. You've given me so many blessings, starting with two sweet parents. Dad is already there in heaven with you....but you have given me another birthday with my mom here on earth. Thank you for that.

I know I often start my days with asking you to take her home to heaven to be with you, because of her condition...but hospice has made me see that that that is not my choice....but yours....and it will be in your own good time. And certainly, and selfishly, on days like today, I'm glad she's still here on earth. So, today, I'm taking her a cake and baby roses to celebrate my birthday with her...and to let her know how much I appreciate that she and my dad decided to bring me into this world. Thank you, sweet Lord.

Your humble daughter,

~Many Communities...One Heartbeat~

I cannot explain to any of you how this tragedy has permeated the soul of our communities. There's a sadness in the air like none I have ever felt in the 30 years we have lived here. All the NE Ohio schools are wearing red & black (Chardon's school colors) to show their support. Please say prayers for the vicitims, the school children, and their families. This morning the students and their families are lining up at the Chardon Square, marching back to the high school for the first time since the shootings , to meet with counselors. There are no words.
