"Tis the Season. Between shopping, wrapping, socializing, and just life in general, I am running a bit behind. Please check back later today or subscribe to BeColorful posts via email, Friend Feed, Facebook, Linky, or Networked Blogs so you don't miss out. Thanks for your patience. Motivated Monday will post later today.
Please say a prayer for the families and friends of the victims in Connecticut. Their grief is beyond comprehension. We should not live in fear but recognize once again how precious life is. There isn't one easy answer to this issue of violence and there isn't a simple solution. It is a combination of a faster and more secular lifestyle, disengaged families, violence in television and video games, guns that are not under lock and key, and holes in our mental health system. Evil will always exist and knee jerk reactions are not the answer. First we must grieve, then we will be angry, but in the end I pray that cooler heads will prevail and we will be able to come together with ideas and solutions that will keep our families safer.
Peace to you and yours,
