Hi
ich weiß nicht wie's euch geht, aber ich musste erst mal etwas verdauen was da passiert ist. (Am 14.12. tötete der 20 jährige Adam Lanza seine Mutter in ihrem Haus, erzwang sich dann einen Weg in die Sandy Hook Grundschule in Newtown und tötete mit zwei Waffen 20 Schüler, 6 Lehrere (darunter auch die Direktorin und den Schulpsychologen) und dann sich selbst.

Ich war erstaunt zu hören, dass es eine Grundschule war. Der narzistisch-histrionische Akt der Rache erschüttert mich in seiner Grausamkeit, weil er sich ausgerechnet an kleine Kinder richtet. Gerade als Mutter von kleinen Kindern finde ich die Vorstellung mein Kind wird kurz vor Weihnachten auf so grausame Art getötet einfach nur schrecklich.

Ich habe ein paar Stimmen aus den heidnischen Gemeinschaften gesammelt, hatte aber leider keine Zeit sie auch noch zu übersetzen. Es sind jeweils Ausschnitte, bis auf das eine Gedicht, was man teilen kann. Wenn ihr auf die Links klickt kommt ihr zu den kompletten Texten.

Ich hoffe das neugeborene Licht kann Trost für die Hinterbliebenen sein.

Kirk Thomas, der aktuelle Erzdruide der ADF schreibt dazu:

Our Prayers For All

As we approach the Solstice, it feels as though the nights are closing in on us. As the ancients did, we lift our spirits with bright lights, decorations, and fellowship, enjoying ourselves as we wait for the return of the light.

But no amount of colored lights can compensate for the shock, sadness, and fear we all felt when we heard of the dreadful events in Connecticut, where 20 little children, with their lives fully ahead of them, were mowed down by a young man who, we assume, was mentally deranged. Who else could do such a thing, we ask?

[...]

Tragedies, such as the Connecticut school shooting, will not be prevented by banning guns, or by turning our schools and malls into fortresses. They can only be prevented by reaching out to each other, by paying attention to our friends and neighbors, our groves and solitaries, and by caring. This may be a time of looking for tolerance and acceptance of everyone, and of not isolating ourselves or others.

So as the sun begins Her return this Solstice, let Her arrival bring us new hope and new commitment to our communities. Let us all remember that none of us are in this life alone, that we are all in this together. And together we shall succeed.

May the healing blessings of the Kindreds enfold the survivors of life's tragedies, granting them peace and comfort. Our heartfelt condolences and blessings go out to all who were touched by this sadness. And may these blessings enfold us all, showing us how we may help ourselves by helping others.

Bright healing blessings,
Rev. Kirk Thomas
ADF Archdruid

Ginger Wages, First Officer Covenant of the Goddess:

I am the Mother of All,
the Innocent and the Brave

Know that I, the Mother of All,
have the lost ones snugly in My embrace
They are not afraid
They are not lost
They are here, with Me,
held closely to my bosom

[...]

Know that I, the Mother of All.
will comfort you who remain
Let your tears wash away the pain
Let your aching hearts mourn



Rev. Michael J. Dangler , ADF

A Prayer

Bright and shining are the wings that carry
souls lost on the winds this day.
They brush the faces of those that cry out
and sigh and dry their moist eyes.

May the children gone now know the way
and move quickly through the dark.
Let them know that they are remembered
and that soon they will be home.

May the light of divinity shine
and illuminate their way.
May those who love them find deep solace
and know peace and love this day.
