I try not to stray too far from knitting and quilting, but this tragedy has hit very close to home and I feel compelled to write about it and ask for your prayers.
The campus is about thiry minutes down the road from me and many people in this area have kids there. There are a few people from my dear church family that have been directly affected. In fact, there is a member of our congregation who joined last year--she's a knitter--who is the aunt of one of the girls who died.
I can't imagine what that family is going through. To make matters worse, I found out yesterday that a hate group is coming to town to picket (yes, you read that right) at the girl's funeral. This will be taking place today, just down the street from my house.
The grief is strong in this area and I am asking, if you believe in the power of prayer as I do, that you will join me in keeping all of these people in your prayers today.
I hope to be back tonight or tomorrow with knitting updates--there is much progress. As you can imagine, my fingers have been busy as I have been thinking on all of these things.
