While I’m so happy and grateful to be with my family today, I keep thinking about the families in Newtown who were planning to spend Christmas with their little children, and how they’ll never get to do that, ever. I keep thinking about the unopened presents, and the hole that will never be filled in their lives.
Take a moment today, hold them in your thoughts, and then hold the people around you. Hold them as tightly as you can.
