|2012 Family Portrait|
We talked, we went to Church, we prayed and for a few days, we acknowledged that in times of National tragedy we are really all together.
Sunday we took the kids to Disneyland and California Adventure. It had been planned long before Sandy Hook, and I knew it was their only chance to visit during the holidays.
As most of us know, the rest of the world seems to disappear when you are at Disneyland. The burdens are a little bit lighter and the smile comes a little bit easier. We didn't go so we could forget the victims. We went so we could remind ourselves of what is truly important to us, and that is spending time together as a family. For a few hours, we could relax a little and remember that there is still joy and happiness in this world and we should all be willing to fight for it - even in the face of terrible tragedy.
I am a firm believer that the purpose of life is to live a life of purpose. I will continue to love my kids and family, pray for others, perform works of charity and remember that God has put us here to make a difference in our own way.
