A Tragic Day for Our Children

Oh my Goddess….where do I begin?  What are we doing?  So many tears; my heart and soul mourn for our children…42 children and 7 adults have have either died or suffered major injury today at the hands of 2 very disturbed individuals.

So, if you would, please find and set aside some time tonight, tomorrow or over the weekend and light a candle, send some energy and/or pray for the little ones’ whose lives were cut so short and for those adults who cared for them.

“Hold them dear Mother,
Our children now lost.
Give them your blessings,
Whatever the cost.

Bless their gentle smiles,
And bless all their tears.
Hold them forever,
In love without fear.” – Lady Abigail from Ravensgrove Coven

Send energy and love to those left behind to try and pick up the pieces, who only have pictures and stuffed animals left to hold and empty bedrooms to look into where smiles, laughter and happy feet used to be…

Take time to sit with, love and appreciate your children.  Really reflect on what kind of future we want for our children and how we can make it better for them, for now is the time – now is the time to awaken, the whole paradigm needs to shift! It is time for us parents to answer the call…the moment is now…

“Every act of violence is a reminder of how important it is to teach our children Love and Peace…..Teach them Peace before the world teaches them violence….Listen to them when they talk, spend time, the times have changed childhood is tough these days….I am hoping all parents would take a few minutes to watch this clip. (Thanks to Jasmine S. for these wise words)” – from the Wisdom of the Sacred Feminine

 

 

 

And let us not forget the  China stabbing spree hurt 22 schoolchildren that also happened today…because they need love and light and are our children too…

This was shared with me this evening, and to be honest, I had never heard of this day before – so I really wanted to share and pass this on.

“Just if you happen to have a spare second and a spare prayer tomorrow…

In Canada, December 6th is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. It is so named in remembrance of the 14 women that were murdered and 10 that were injured solely for being women in an engineering school. They were separated from the male students, and gunned down… just for being female. Their murderer claimed he was ‘fighting feminism’.

I know it’s a Canadian thing, and we’re not all women here, but it’s something I try to spread word about every year as much as I can. I went to school for engineering, and I very much feel their loss on this day.

I really appreciate you taking the time to have a read. We’ve come a long way since 1989, but I think the prevention of violence of any kind, anywhere, is something we can all still get behind. ♥ ” – Tara Loughborough
