I woke up this morning, a half a world away, to learn about news of a tragedy that happened back home. To anyone with a heart, this news is unimaginable. To me, as a mother, it was unspeakable.
I cried, and continue to cry, for those babies. Imagining the fear they had in their last moments on this earth.
I imagined my own son, Braden, crying for me, and my not being able to save him.
I don't know these children, but I can see each of their faces in front of me. I hope they didn't suffer, felt the love their parents had for them, and left this earth peacefully.
My thoughts and prayers go out to their families. I don't know how life goes on after such a tragedy.
