The Light Shines In The Darkness and the Darkness Has Never Put It Out"
My prayers go out to all the families in Newton, Connecticut. Words cannot express the pain, sorrow and the lost we are feeling as a community. We may never have answers for why this horrendous crime occurred but we can keep our candle lit. As a community there is much work to be done but for now we can be a beacon of light for our neighbors in Newton and support them in their time of mourning.
I like the idea that Karen Wolrond shared on her blog, Chookooloonks for reaching out to the families of Sandy Hook. Please share with others and let the light shine.
"If anyone wants to mail sympathy cards or letters of support and solidarity to the school, the school address is: Sandy Hook Elementary School, 12 Dickenson Drive, Sandy Hook, CT 06482. Please copy/paste/share, anywhere you prefer. Prayers and sending a card may seem something small, but at least, it's something we can do."
“I think this is a stellar idea. It's also something that our kids might enjoy doing to help process their feelings about what they hear on the news.”
