Keep the community of Newtown in your heart
I still get intensely sad when I think about the horrific tragedy in Newtown, CT last December. In an effort to honor the lives lost and help the community heal, members of the Newtown community have formed a nonprofit grassroots organization called Sandy Hook Promise. Their mission is to come together and support all involved. They are dedicated to making and keeping the very important promises of honoring the 26 lives that were lost and encouraging and supporting common sense solutions that make our communities and country safer. We can all make these promises at Sandy Hook Promise.
It was two months on Valentine’s Day, pledge your support to the Newtown community by participating in the One Million Hearts for Newtown campaign. Although Valentine’s Day has passed, you can still send a virtual Valentine to show the community of Newtown that they are in your heart. My heart goes out to the parents of those sweet babies and the families of all the victims. I hope you’ll join me in making the Sandy Hook Promise and send them your love and support.

Our spirit is not.”

Its so easy for people to quickly forget things like this when they are so far removed from the situation; but its things like this that continue to keep the lives lost remembered. Thanks for shedding light on the two month anniversary, I will try to send a virtual Valentine.
It is easy to forget, especially someting that is painful to remember. I’m glad they did this campaign.

I am still in disbelief about the tragedy of the Sandy Hook School. I will admit that when watching the Super Bowl and they had children of Sandy Hook Elementary, I cried. This is a wonderful way to remember those cherished angels that are in a better place. 🙂
I still can’t believe it either and I’m not a weepy person but it can bring me to tears every time I think about it. My youngest is a first grader as well.
