We belong to each other.

It has been difficult for me to fully process the horror of what happened in Newtown, Connecticut this past Friday.  I think of those innocent children, only six- and seven-years-old, and of the teachers and administrators who lost their lives trying to protect their students, and all I can think is “why.”  Such senseless loss of life. 

It is hard to accept that one human being could do this to another.  I keep asking myself: How does this happen?  What can we do to prevent this from happening again?  In the days following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I came across this quote by Mother Teresa.  It has stayed with me.
