Jackie I have always felt that our purpose here was to do just as you say and indeed, it is hard to find that special gift within. Thanks for the reminder and I think I can safely add that age does not matter. Sometimes you have one gift you share and later in life you find another because your circumstances change. So always keep looking and who knows you may find you have many talents.

The school shooting in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six staff members of Sandy Hook Elementary School were killed last week, is a tragic reminder of the sanctity of life. Of promising young lives cut short and the uniqueness and preciousness of every single person.

As a mother of two, I try to imagine the grief of the parents of the dead -- it must be overwhelming and all consuming. Just thinking of the tragedy leaves me with a heavy heart, tears in my eyes and the feeling that I need to lie down before I faint.

Unfathomable horror....
