  1. Village Idiot

    My Grand Mother was born and raised in Newtown I fee this connection strong. While watching the first accounts of these children being killed, I noticed I had rivers of tears running down my face. No boo hooing, just tears. I have only once before experienced this, the day my son died. Like me these parent will never truly put this behind themselves, Time will reduce the pain. The memory of their loving children will help–remember them always and often, it helps. Please dear God, never ever allow this to happen again to any parent anywhere. Thank you Uconn, Geno, Christine and the team –it’s important you acknowledge the loss of these Teacher and Children.
