As I said in another post, the Ace of Cups represents a gift of love. There were many such gifts given during the horror that unfolded in the U.S. yesterday when a gunman opened fire in a primary school in Connecticut.
First grade teacher Kaitlin Roig protected her class from the gunman by barricading them in a bathroom. She said to them, ‘I need you to know that I love you all very much and that it’s going to be OK.’ She thought they were all going to die and that was the last thing her students were ever going to hear. Afterwards she told reporters, ‘I wanted them to know someone loved them. I wanted that to be the last thing they heard, not the gunfire in the hallway.’
What a great gift to give to the children in her care. Not only did she save their lives she had the piece of mind to let them know what was truly important in that moment. That they are loved. Bless her and the other heroes of this terrible tragedy. Some gave their lives for their students and there is no greater gift of love than that. I salute them all!
