Dream sweet dreams for you, dream sweet dreams for me

This post is in memory of Ben Wheeler. I never met him, but I feel like I knew him, and he has touched my heart.

He was 6 years old and he died one week ago today at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

He was a Scout and "he loved The Beatles, lighthouses and the number 7 train to Sunnyside, Queens."

I'm posting this Beatles song for little Ben.

    Such a sweet post.

    These children have been on my mind since I first heard the news last week. It turns out that one of the girls who was killed, Grace McDonnell, was born on the same day as my Allie. I look at my innocent, beautiful first-grader and wonder how Grace's family will ever get over their loss.

    I have cried over this every day. I'm not sure when I'll stop. Intellectually, I know that there is less-than-miniscule chance that anything will happen to my kids. At the same time, I can't stop thinking about it. :(
