I grew up in Newtown, CT. It has been my home since I was 6 months old. I attended Sandy Hook Elementary as a Kindergartner. It is a place where I could walk down the street as a child and feel safe. It is the place I plan on raising my own kids. It is a community I know and love. And today someone walked in and destroyed that within minutes.
In this time of sorrow, there are no words that can take away our pain and hurt. However, Newtown is a place where everyone supports one another. We know and love each other. And while these horrific events have torn us apart today, we will come together as a community, as we always do, and we will recover. We will walk together, hand in hand, as we begin to heal. We will hold up the parents and loved ones of the victims when they are not able to stand.
We will pull together and we will heal.
One day, we will live in a world where our children can go to school safely and where our loved ones are not torn away from us by acts of violence.
Love you Newtown <3
