26 innocent lives where taken without warning. Let's heart this story 2600 times for them--100 hearts for every child who will never see another day.

Tragedy of Connecticut: In Memory of Lives Lost

Oh tragedy! Oh tragedy!

What violence has just occurred? A nation shattered by senseless deeds, hatred---Man’s darkest curse.

What hands can mend this tragedy? What hands can bind this wound?

Dear God, please heal us now. We pray, Oh God, please do.

Our hearts, they hold this tragedy. They beat with grief inside.

We know that tears, they can’t heal this pain, and yet, Oh Lord we cry

If we could reverse the clock and take back this sudden doom

If we could just make it stop---

Remember the children of Sandy Hook School. Let's not forget them. Read "Little Angels."

I noticed your post in the Red Pen Society where you said that you were allergic to raw fruits and vegetables because of your seasonal allergies. I have allergies too, with the same kind of deal -- I can't eat raw carrots because of my seasonal allergy to birch trees. So I was wondering if you wanted to join my group Allergic Figgies. It's new and there are very few members, but I have a lot in store for the group and am looking for other figgies with allergies to join. You can check it out here:

Please don't feel pressured to join at all or guilty about not joining...I just wanted to let you know about the group in case you were interested. If you know of anyone else on Figment who has allergies, please tell him/her about this group, or I can if you want!

A while ago, you read and reviewed chapters of my novel Green Light at Tiger Road. Since then, I have finished the book. I am currently working on my query letter and I was hoping you could give me feedback.

Here's the link if you can spare the time.

Thanks, Ashley

Hi, would you be willing to read my story It's Not Okay? I am trying to reach a goal of 1,000 hearts. If you don't do free reads then comment on my profile and I would love to swap. Thanks!
