I am so thankful for all the artists I have meet through my online class, Flying Lessons. We now have a group that stays in touch, and that is how I heard about this wonderful act of kindness. Jessica Brogan, artist and blogger, put this together, and I am so thankful to her. You can find her blog at In search of dessert
Once I finally started my cards, I found it to be such a moving experience...at first it was just playing cards, paint, and paper. As soon as I laid them all across the table after the first coat of paint, it hit me. Hard. 26 cards. 26 LIVES lost...in a senseless act. I took red paint and put a large heart on each one. All I could think about was the hearts lost, and the hearts left broken from their tremendous loss. I cried while I painted. I hugged my daughters. I had them each paint a heart on a card in honor of one of the children.
