Jumping Tandem Sunday ~ "I Am Sorry"

Our country is grieving. Each child who has been slaughtered belongs to each of us and each slain adult is a member of our family. It is impossible to explain the horror to ourselves and to our survivors. We need to hold each other’s hands and look into each other’s eyes and say, “I am sorry.” Maya Angelou

Thank you Deidra for hosting Sundays at Jumping Tandem.

That is beautiful. Wow. Thank you for sharing it. (And I will share it with my mom...I don't know if she read it/hear it yet, but she's one of Maya Angelou's biggest fans.)

Thanks for sharing. I like Maya Angelou's work as well. It's hard to fathom this tragedy. It came a few days after the shooting at the mall half hour drive from my home and where my son and wife like to shop, Oregon. So glad they weren't there. We continue to pray for the victims, their families and the first responders, and for our country and for people's hearts. We all need God in our lives, now and in the future. Hugs to you, Rona. Thanks for stopping by my blog too!

This is true. So many horrific events take place in our country/in the world, BUT this time hearts have been grasped with sorrow, no matter where the people are living. I was teary, many times, and my heart is pouring out for the families.

Thank you.
