Where To Start?

We have the horrible tragedy that took place in CT and the proposed end of the world around the corner on December 21, 2012.
I cannot and do not want to imagine what the families and friends of the victims in CT are going through.
It is and always has been a terrifying thought that someone, anyone, could just pick up a gun and do such horrific violence and damage. But it happens quite often doesn't it.
All I have to offer are prayers.

I think about the end of the world and there are days I think, bring it. I think I am ready for something that signifies great change because the ways of the world haven't suited me for a very long time. Crazy talk I know. I despise listening to the news and having to hang onto one feel good story to make up for hundreds of guess who did what now.
I really do long for change..

I believe there is good in the world and I hold tight to that belief in the face of such tragedy I must in order to go one. I will focus my thoughts and min on the good folks who helped and stood strong for the fallen and pray for thos lost

I look at my girls and wonder how it could be, for someone to be so angry, distraught or out of touch, enough to shoot not only a child but so many? What could a child possibly do to deserve being killed in such a brutal manner. I am thankful that none of them suffered for long.

I also question why his mother would have such an arsenal in the house, knowing he had deep rooted issues. That is asking for trouble and its not a matter of If, but WHEN?

Here's the thing about making great change in the world:

The only thing you can change is yourself.

But sometimes, if you work at it, it can bring great change into your own world.

This shooting hit me hard for some reason, hard enough to put a real downward spike into the ongoing depression. But I'm working on it (yes, also with a shrink). Such a horrible thing -- it makes me wonder why God would allow it to happen.

As for the upcoming End Of The World on 12/21, the only thing I'm planning is what to set my alarm to for 12/22.
