Remembering the Children ~ December 14, 2012

On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh bombed the Murah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and damaged or destroyed 324 other buildings. Of the 168 people killed, 19 were children. Today we lost 20 children and 6 adults in a senseless killing spree at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. After the Oklahoma City killings I did a series of cards entitled "Remembering the Children." Tonight I went upstairs and searched out that series of little watercolors, and I am posting them for our Skywatch Friday. As you can see, my little drawings depicted the children as angels floating up through the blue sky to Heaven. My artwork is terribly primitive, but it came from the heart in 1995, and it once again comes from the heart on December 14, 2012...a heart that is weeping once again.

  1. Beautiful, Eugenia. Simple and charming just as they need to be. A sweet reflection of the innocent ones.

    Like many today, I was inspired to create an art piece as well. It's posted at my Scenes blog.

  7. All it took was the first picture: I am in tears. When children die, it is awful, but when they are murdered it is almost incomprehensible. Thank you for this memorial.
