Description:

New goal for hearts: 26 children died at Sandy Hook Elementary School. What if we aimed for 2600 hearts in honor of them? I know it sounds crazy, but would anyone be willing to help me reach that?
This is a short story about a writer struggling to write about the Sandy Hook School Shooting in Connecticut on December 14, 2012. She's too traumatized by the event even for words until she's comforted by God's presence. Note: I am now down to exactly 500 words! (Although the computer as other ideas)
"I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry." {Psalm 40:1}

"Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." {Psalm 31:24}

I am just sitting in my room, curled up in a cocoon of blankets, unaware of everything going on in the world. a single tear falls on to my computer, as I read a story so true and so sad. Great job, it makes you remember and remember that this is not a perfect world, but God makes it that much brighter.

This piece is beautiful, and handles the situation with the right respect and gives me, as a reader, a hope for the future. I love how you incorporated the movement of the words, and, as a Christian, I think that this is one the most well-done pieces I have read in quite a while.

My school is named Sandy Hook Elementary school, but its a different school.. not the same one. But I liked it. It was good, and I could see what was going on here.
