A moment of silence

 Please say prayers for those who were shot, killed and injured in Tuscon, Arizona this past Saturday.
Our political climate is stormy. Many people do not understand what to make of it.
Violence never helps.

One of the victims is a 9 year old girl the same age as my Tommy. Please pray for her family.
As well as all of the others who died or are injured and in critical condition.
Thank you


  1. ...and I have been and will continue to do so. Very sad.

  2. I didn't hear of this - our news is swamped with the flooding in Northern Australia & those who have lost their lives.. very sad everywhere.. will of course send up a prayer for those in Tuscon xoxo

  3. Violence does not ever help. Unfortunately, the people who do these things are nothing more than nut jobs.

  4. I have been thinking of you, and those deeply affected by the shooting. What a beautiful child she was!

  5. It's all so senseless. Violence never solves just makes it worse.

  6. I don't think we've had such a volatile political climate in this country since McCarthyism. It's frightening. We're watching the news and keeping good thoughts for the survivors and their families. So very sad.

  7. Gemma, I'm so overcome at what happened in Tucson... and reading about Christina's death and what her family must be going through...well, just breaks my heart over again. Been lighting my candle here.

    And, yes, you heard correctly, we are about to uproot and move down to Sedona! I would soooooo love to meet you and have heART adventure or just a cuppa tea or anything. I'm so excited about what it will be like to land and settle in there. In the meantime though, it's all chaos and boxes here :) We'll pull into Sedona Feb 1 or 2... so let's plan to connect in early Feb and see what we can make happen?!

    So many miracles to you!

  8. So sad Gemma. I fear for the future of our country.
