Unbelievable news! Twenty preschoolers gunned down in their classroom! Innocent victims of a deranged young shooter, son of the children’s teacher.
And parents and grandparents, numb with shock and grief, returning now to darkened homes, presents still unwrapped, toys stored on closet shelves.
Only this morning I attended a party for other innocents—a pancake breakfast at our church for daycare children here in the Village. They perched on Santa’s knee and told him all their secrets, and we grown-ups smiled as tiny tots sang “Jesus Loves Me.”
