The tragedy yesterday hit close to home for dad and me. Newtown is about 15 miles away from where we live. The events that occurred yesterday shook us to the core. Dad's eyes still leak whenever he thinks of those baby hoomans that are gone forever. How their lives were senselessly ended before they began. And the parents. What is Christmas going to be like? This year and every year going forward? The presents wrapped and under the tree that will never be opened. The sounds of joy and happiness have been replaced by sounds of sorrow and heartbreak.
If there is any good that comes out of this tragedy - and we owe it to those who lost their lives to find something worthwhile in their passing - it is that we must not take our loved ones for granted. So take time to tell the people you love how much they mean to you. Jump into their laps and give them a few headbonks. Purr like a motorboat, groom them, or whatever you do to display affection towards your hoomans. You never know if the next time they walk out the door, it will be the last time you ever see them.
P.S. I love all of you, my Catster brothers and sisters.

Love you too, Aedan... Glad you and your family are safe. And Thank you for finding something good to think of in face of such a tragedy! Purrs with those lost.
Sending big orange purrs out to everyone touched by this senseless tragedy.
My heart goes out to all those families. Mom was so very sad she could barely watch. She just hugged my hoomin sister so much and gave us all extra cuddles.
Lots of hugs to you too!
