Newtown Another Perspective~from a Reader and Resident

A reader asked me to post this perspective of Newtown, Conn.  It is a town the residents love and cherish.  A town that is working through finding an identity that links the past and the present with grace. This will be my last post on the Sandy Hook Anniversary.

 

Sandy Hook Evil Did Not Win~ Words from Emilie’s Mom

The first anniversary of the Sandy Hook Shooting is December 14th.  I think this video is worth sharing.  It is sad but in Emilie’s Mom’s own words, “Evil did not win.”  I think we all need to remember that children are dying everyday from gun violence in our country. Children are dying on street corners and in their own strollers.  We need to take a stand against gun violence.  I also remember the teachers who gave their lives that day to protect children. We have the power to keep evil from winning~let’s make sure that we protect all children and those that love them.
