Hi! Sherry Kyle, here, writing from my laptop in California. Do you need hope today? I was raised in
Colorado and my heart goes out to the people who lost their homes in the recent fires and lost loved ones in the tragic killings in Aurora.
At church yesterday, my pastor talked about the common reactions to tragedy—isolation, irritability, inaction, fear, and hopelessness. Do you relate to any of these? I do. My husband suggested we go to a movie the other day and I shook my head in fear. Besides the recent events in Colorado, I remembered a time twenty years ago when a gunman ran through the elementary school campus I worked at and how I felt trying to protect the four-year-olds in my care.
