Only a day before the horrible events that happened at Sandy Hook elementary my sister and I were at the Portland Zoolights event. Its beautiful...even magical (go if you can) and it was full of happy kids. The day the shooting happened all I could think was that I just seen kids just like these. All these kids had a favorite animal and a favorite color. They all had a favorite movie...they all wanted to be something when they grew up. It hurts to think about.
We need to rise about the monster who did this and leave it in the dark. We just need to remember the people who died and the kids who lost the chance to grow up. They all had a favorite animal and a favorite color and I hope I honored that in some small way.
