Hope and Prayers... by linmarie

Currently unavailable for purchase

I created this today and dedicate it to all the families whom lost children and family members today… December 14th, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newton CT.. USA…
So very sad,, so many questions to ask… and the first one that comes to mind is WHY?
Who missed the signs this young man that killed innocent children and school officials in control of watching over our children… had problems.. where did he get these kind of guns.. what got missed.. that could have prevented this horrible tragedy…it is a very sad day today.. my love, prayers and hope for healing to all whom have lost a loved one .. I pray very heavily today…I am heavy in heart♥


hope, prayers, innocent, tragedy, loss, children, teachers, school, elementary, souls, faith, love

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    When will it all stop…what will be left to lend to our grand children as they grow if this kind of thing keeps happening…how dreadful for those families, for the survivors, and for the little minds who now must heal after such a trauma! Lovely tribute my sister, but sad, so very sad!

    I’ve been crying ever since this came to my attention…..sadly…..the shooter had a mental disorder of some kind and his mother, a teacher, felt the need to own guns.
    Although I believe in the right to possess fire-arms………..there just REALLY needs to be more limits on who/what/where/when these can be kept. How many more children must we loose before anyone fixes this???
    My heart to all those who lost their beautiful ones…..and my prayers to those who are still here in mourning.

  • ahhhhhhhhh,, I am hugging you Carla as we cry… I wanted to run and hug all my grandchildren and children and give thanks to God for their safety.. so I prayed for the ones lost and their families and gave thanks for our God watching over my family… I am grateful but heart broken for these families♥
