I had a hard time taking Doodle Bug to school that Monday. He struggled with what a tragedy like this meant. The shock was enough to make him question the very existence of the Goddess. It's been two years and he still asks me sometimes if Miss J (his special education teacher) knows what to do if "a man with a gun" comes into their school.
Personally, I still cry when I think about it. So, I won't be typing much today, but I encourage you to visit the legacy website that the town put together: My Sandy Hook Family
On our ITHOMS Facebook page, today, you will find links to the various foundations and non-profits which were founded in the names of the victims. Always verify the legitimacy of a charity before you donate funds.
"We are currently developing a compassion- and wisdom-based curriculum to introduce into our schools and communities – inspirational and educational programs that will incorporate this empowering message and also highlight unforgettable stories of young people (including genocide survivors) who have overcome extreme hardship through choosing love over anger."
