Some lessons learned from the Sandy Hook Tragedy:

Life is short….never walk away without a smile or an “I love you”

Many people are suffering….do your best to offer a word of compassion, an expression of encouragement or simply an ear to listen

Never, ever leave God out of any circumstance, good or bad

Learn from the children…they always have something important to teach

Be gentle with yourself…so that you can be gentle with others

Leave the judgment to God for it is only God who can read hearts

Always trust that there is a bigger picture, a larger plan, a real purpose

Live the journey but keep the destination in your heart

Walk alongside others whenever you can…so that you both

have someone to lean on

Remember that we are ALL children….and, remember
