Please join and support the SANDY HOOK PROMISE (org. created by the parents)



The parents just gave a press conference about an hour ago and I can't stop crying. They said repeatedly that they choose LOVE, not fear or anger.


PLEASE visit their website, sign up to show support, and follow via whatever social media you may use.

Here is the text to their Mission Statement...The Sandy Hook PROMISE

Our hearts are broken;
Our spirit is not.

And it is with this knowledge
that we are able to move forward
with purpose…and strength…

This is a Promise

To support our own
our families, our neighbors, our teachers, our community
with dedication and love
as well as the material and financial needs they will require
in the days ahead.

This is a Promise

To truly honor the lives lost
by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation.

This is a Promise

To be open to all possibilities.
There is no agenda other than to make
our community and our nation a safer, better place.

This is a Promise

To have the conversations on ALL the issues
Conversations where listening is as important as speaking.
Conversations where even those with the most opposing views
can debate in good will.

This is a Promise

To turn the conversation into actions.
Things must change.
This is the time.

This is a Promise

We make to our precious children.
Because each child, every human life is filled with promise,
and though we continue to be filled with unbearable pain
we choose love, belief, and hope
instead of anger.

This is a Promise

To do everything in our power to be remembered
not as the town filled with grief and victims;
but as the place where
real change began.

Our hearts are broken;
Our spirit is not.

This is our promise.

8. Thanks, OGR, for posting this. I was away all day and might not

have seen it. Bless the Sandy Hook School parents/families, teachers, admins., and the whole community who were involved. May their efforts bring the change they are seeking, and a new day for their community.
