The Tragedy in Newton, CT


I don’t have any profound words to say about this tragic event at Sandy Hook Elementary.  I am deeply heartbroken for these families that were directly affected and for the first responders to the scene.

I have decided to honor the victims by sharing some of the beautiful blog posts or stories I have found across the web.  Today is a day to remember the victims, not the senseless murderer.  Let’s remember the children and adults who lost their lives and gave their lives to save the children around them.

If you would like to mail sympathy cards or letters of support and solidarity to Sandy Hook Elementary School, the school address appears to be:

Sandy Hook Elementary School
12 Dickenson Drive
Sandy Hook, CT 06482
Please copy/paste/share widely.
