I tuned into NPR on the way home from church today and was reminded that the Sandy Hook tragedy happened 2 years ago today. This still unnerves me, as a father of 3 (thankfully) grown adult children. Here is what I wrote 2 years ago.
The NPR report was on Jimmy Greene, father of Ana Green, and jazz composer and musician. He just released a CD as a tribute to his daughter.
Great music. Great dad. And a very moving story.
O God, whose beloved Son did take little children into his
arms and bless them: Give us grace, we beseech thee, to
entrust this child Ana to thy never-failing care and love, and
bring us all to thy heavenly kingdom; through the same thy
Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort:
Deal graciously, we pray thee, with all those who mourn, that
casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of
thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. [Book of Common Prayer]
