That's a big 10-4. Truly tragic!

Very difficult times indeed, but I have great faith in your ability to come together when called upon.

Our prayers are with the family's, bless the teachers that had try to protect the kids. During a memorial service over the weekend some one called in a bomb scare to the church and had to be evacuated. there is some very touching info and books of condolences on some of our local news channels such as WFSB in hartford, WTNH in New Haven, and WTIC (fox) in hartford.

I've purposely laid low the past few days. The news hit me hard as well. There's just no avoiding it though, this is a truly horrible thing. Lots of love and prayers being sent to the families and classmates of this terrible thing.

There are some absolutely crazy people in today's world. Words can't describe the horrible events from last Friday. My family is still praying for those most affected (although this affects us all) by this madman's rampage. God bless us all. Happy Camping!!

This is a horrible tragedy and one that hits every community very hard. I have many friends in Newtown, and one friend of my wife's, grandson was in his Kindergarden class that day and witnessed far more than a 5 year old should. While this boy survived, it will take a long time to remove the scaring which was inflicted and the visions which he saw.
There are many places where donations can take place, and if anyone is looking to help, that's how to do it. In the Newtown area, the local mall (Danbury Fair Mall) and several stores such as Sears have begun to donate items to replace those locked in Sandy Hook Elem. as evidence. Book bags, coats, gloves and a host of other school related and personal supplies so when these students are able to return they have the things they need. This will also give the families one less thing to worry about as they have far more on their plate than they should. Hopefully, I'll be loading the pickup up tomorrow to deliver a load of these supplies to the school, there were 2 loads today.

Offers of volunteers grew so large, that the school district of Monroe had to ask people to please stop volunteering. Monroe has offered a recently closed school for Newtown to use. Hundreds of volunteers offered to renovate the school to accommodate the students of S.H.E.S. with a round the clock commitment to be done by Friday.

In the midst of this tragedy, it is beautiful to see communities all around the world respond with prayer, gifts, offers of help and acts of kindness. Those of us who live in the area are seeing tributes almost everywhere, scholarships setup, and just a massive outpouring that while doesn't negate the horrible act, does prove that the world is not going down the tube and there is true love and compassion with the majority of the world.

My wife just got back from Newtown. If anyone is interested in donating, I think money would be best as they have more Teddy Bears than they know what to do with.
