Today I don't want to talk about violence in our schools or gun control. I want to talk about . I want to talk about how each of us can do one thing, one small thing to help a child who has witnessed and experienced great tragedy at a tender age. A child who will never be the same, for whom yesterday will be a moment that is etched in their memory and consciousness for the rest of their lives.
You can mail a card/letter of support and encouragement to the children and teachers. If your children are old enough that you have discussed this with them, part of the discussion could be to have them make a card to send too.
The address is:
Sandy Hook Elementary School
12 Dickenson Drive
Sandy Hook, CT 06482
Please share this with your circles. The more people we can reach, the more children we can help. Thanks.

From Stacy: Republic Wireless is holding a contest for a $1,000 cash prize. I’m submitting a picture for, “If I had $1,000 right now...”. If I win I will buy up an extra boatload of Wishlist gifts--simple as that!
This is where I need your help! I will need you to vote for my submission on FB--I know, I know lame. Lame, but just think of how cool it would be to put all that extra money into making someone’s, many someone’s, holidays cheerier! The most “Likes” wins! So this isn’t some randomly picked winner, that’s why I need your votes! You can vote daily.
