The Sign of Peace

Indescribable.  Incomprehensible.  Horrific.  Tragic.

There are so many words and yet there are no words to describe what happened on Friday morning. 
As we begin to learn more, as we start to put names with faces – and those faces with birthdates – it will only get harder. 

There are no words. 
During the Catholic Mass, parishioners shake the hands of those around them and whisper “Peace be with you.” 

And so those are the only words that I can summon on this weekend of unimaginable heartache.
Peace be with you. 


  1. Peace be with you, Emily. Give your girls some extra snuggles tonight!
