Newtown Tragedy- Immeasurable Heartbreak

 

There are no words that could take away the heartbreak and profound grief of a parent who just found out that their child has died as the result of  a horrific crime. I won’t even pretend to comprehend that the depth of this kind of grief.  However, I do know that collectively people can help with healing by giving the family words and actions of comfort and to not forget their child.

I recently received this information and I pass it on to those who read this blog. It is the address to the SANDY HOOK School where cards are being received and will be disseminated to the families of the fallen and the staff.

Here is the address and thank you.

  1. Hi Louise,

    This is 10 minutes from my house. Many teachers in my daughters’ schools live in Newtown and the other neighboring community. Last week a teacher at my daughter’s school was murdered by her husband. Now this. It’s beyond words.

  2. Alison- I had no idea of the murder in a neighboring area to Newtown. The losses are incomprehensible. So very sorry. Please see this article by Wendy Young to help -http://networkedblogs.com/G0qOf
