Due to Another Act of Sheer Evil, Today is a Day for Nothin’ But Love, WG2E-Land

Now that we’ve all seen yet another act of nothing but evil having its way with our world, I wanted to take a day where here in WG2E-Land…

It’s Nothin’ But Love

My heart goes out to all of the families, friends, and townspeople involved in the horrible tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, and I know each of yours does too.

It’s times like this that are also unfortunately becoming all to frequent that we must begin to heal the world and each other. And nothing heals like the power of love.

It’s a day to hug those close to you and perhaps hug strangers too. It’s a day to make sure those you love know that you love them. It’s a day to hold your blessings dear and share them with those less fortunate.

We’ve suffered another horrible act of random violence, and the only way to move forward from that is to practice random acts of kindness and love.

Here’s to each of you fabulous WG2E-Land Peeps, who I adore as part of my family. Let’s show Nothin’ But Love Today…

Please share your thoughts below…

    I guess The Beatles said it best:

    Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.

    There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
    Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
    Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
    It’s easy.
    There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made.
    No one you can save that can’t be saved.
    Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
    It’s easy.

    All you need is love, all you need is love,

    There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.
    Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.
    Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
    It’s easy.
    All you need is love, all you need is love……………………….

    I send heartfelt sorrow to all of those parents who had children taken from them. You don’t expect your children to die before you do. I was horrified to hear that some of the children were only 5. Thoughts to all of those who survived.

    Love, as the founding motivation in works of life, is the prime moving force in the continual creation of our universe. Hate and death beget nothing. Once a cataclysm has run its course, those two aberrations run out of fuel to feed their fire. Life afterward can begin again out of any circumstance.

    Nobility in the face of adversity, the strength to endure, empathy for those that suffer, and courage are the result in the end for those who hold to faith. A treasure in the heart, it whispers to us of a time when the work of the enemy will be utterly undone.

    I grew up in the next town over from Newtown and knew the Sandy Hook of my youth well. I don’t know if you can really put into perspective the horror of this if you don’t know the community. To give you an idea, there was one murder in Newtown in the last TEN years. This is a community that has no thick skin to deal with this kind of atrocity. My heart aches for the friends that still live there. I don’t pray a lot but my thoughts and prayers are with them now.

  5. Sending love to the community of Newtown, and to all my friends at WG2E.

    So very, very sad. Too many people have been touched by this senseless act of violence and I can do nothing more than think good, positive thoughts to the people of Newtown as I have no comprehension as to how they’re currently feeling xx

    Thank you all for your wonderful messages…let’s keep the luuuvvv comin’…

    I did just email President Obama at The White House…I have no idea of course whether or not it will ever reach him, but I feel so strongly that we have to do something to stop these kinds of violent acts as best as we can, and at least make our voices heard. Here’s what I wrote:

    First, thank you, President Obama, for your compassionate, loving kind response to the Newtown Shootings.

    I have a Bachelors in Political Science and Psychology, and just wanted to offer a couple of ideas in how to help prevent this, as best we can, from happening again.

    What if…you developed a plan to go around the whole gun control issue and instead focused on mental health and, in effect, made that a socialized medicine type experiment, where every American has access to mental health care?

    Also, What if…you got corporate and top 1% Americans to sponsor small out-buildings in school parking lots where all guests meet with students or faculty so that no one is ever buzzed through into a school? That would limit access in a healthy, productive way.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    I do think these ideas could work and at least offer additional checkpoints in the current systems to reach someone before they commit such horrible acts.

    I can tell you all from being married to a 30-Year Sheriff’s Department Captain, who’s now our county’s Jail Commander, that our law enforcement systems and legal systems in general are not set-up to deal with mental health patients. And gun control laws have no effect whatsoever on the mentally ill.

    And this really is a mental health issue at heart.

    Not only are law enforcement officials not able to follow-up on these types of cases before they escalate to the Newtown level, but essentially, because of breakdowns in reporting procedures between mental health and law enforcement professionals for these kinds of at-risk sociopaths, they often don’t know about them.

    Also, due to our horrible health insurance and medical systems, there is NOT the kind of help available and/or affordable for the vast majority of Americans who need this kind of specialized treatment.

    We’ve simply got to be in better position to stop these kinds of individuals from getting to this level and point of no return. Otherwise, we’ll never be safe. And yes, there will still be tragedies, but perhaps less in number than we’re seeing become more common place.

    It’s not about controlling the guns. That is a rather “pie in the sky,” non-enforceable ideal. It’s about stopping the idea and impulse to use a gun as an answer to deep-rooted mental health issues and illnesses.

  8. Feeling very, very distressed over this…it will be exceedingly difficult to get into the Christmas spirit when I think of the unimaginable suffering of all those families. Tragedy is one thing when it’s a natural disaster…but this was man-made and completely unnecessary. Shattering all those families…why???

    May the Lord have mercy upon us all.

  9. I’m in. Nothing but kindness, compassion and love.

  10. Your letter to President Obama offered solutions that are not only feasible, but worthy of being addressed. The issue IS mental health. Who else but a troubled tortured soul would do such a horrid thing?

    Thank you, DD.
