A Sandy Hook Christmas

A town in mourning
No joy in this season of
Wonder, love, and light
   The children on the mantel
   Won't be here again this year.

    Dear Craig, This is particularly meaningful for those of us who live in Newtown. Though not personally involved other than friends with first hand experiences - teachers, grandchildren who escaped. Here we are, ever stunned. love, Kathy

    Who can ever forget such a tragic day? And on a holiday, especially, the mind and heart pours with tears for the families left with such a heartache....their hurt must be too unbearable. A story well told, Craig.
