I keep asking myself why? Why would this happen to innocent children and teachers who had the their whole lives ahead of them? This tragedy is beyond heartbreaking and I must admit that majority of my thoughts have been consumed by the events that happened last week in Connecticut. It is beyond difficult to comprehend how something like this can even happen. Every time I look at a child I think that this child is not much older or is the same age or younger than those beautiful Sandy Hook kids. At this point in time many of us are wanting to know what else we can do and how we can help.
I recently came across a post on Facebook from a friend detailing how we can help. What may seem a simple act of kindness will surely be priceless for the little kids as they return to school in January. When school resumes for Sandy Hook, it will be in a new building. Parent-volunteers are working to ensure that the students are welcomed back by a winter wonderland with the entire school decorated with as many unique snowflakes as possible. Senders are encouraged to be as creative as possible, remembering that no two snowflakes are alike. Make and send snowflakes by 1/12/13 to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514***
What the world needs now is love and I am hoping that we can spread the word in honoring all the students at Sandy Hook in making their Winter Wonderland a reality.
Don’t know how to make paper snowflakes? It’s easy and fun!
Here are some ideas:
