Not so Wordless Wednesday

I had my Wordless Wednesday ready to go.  Complete with pictures of our fantastic day of picnic and play at the beach today.

Things change.

 I just read a news story that truly broke my heart.  If you choose to you can read it here (warning: contains content that may offend/be sensitive to some readers).

Stories that would have upset me prior to Emmett now have a significantly different impact on me.  As a parent I cannot fathom why anyone would want to hurt their child or allow any harm to come on them. 

I stopped what I was doing and had to grieve for this loss.  Whether it was an accident or mishap is irrelevant.  A beautiful and unknowing child was the victim. 

I posted on Facebook yesterday that a pet peeve of mine is when people that are uneducated or unread in an area see it necessary to post endless I leave you with simply my feelings about this and some reading to help educate yourselves or others.
