The creche has never looked more empty than it does today. The wait for my children to come home has never been heavier. Words have never seemed so thin and poor. But they are what I have, and so I offer them to the families of Newtown, along with my prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is all of ours.

One Response to “Empty”

    I have no words yet, Kyran, so thank you for finding some and sharing them. The emptiness in my house is now full of laughter and noise from two happy children filling up the silence in my aching heart, watching Adventure Time, their imaginations running wild.

    And as I sit here pretending to work, I am mostly frozen over. I keep thinking how will these families ever fill the silence again? How will they ever laugh again? Or sleep? Or eat? Or move? Numb. That’s the only word I can think of to describe the unthinkable.
