It was bitterly cold on Friday as darkness fell. About 50 of us held candles. Print outs showing the weapons used by the Newtown shooter were passed around. Some drivers honked, or yelled “THANK YOU” out of open windows. Above the Turnpike, a thumbnail of a moon cut a curve of light in the sky, about as beautiful as it gets.
Obama just read off the names of the dead children.
There is a petition asking for immediate action to address gun control here.
Reading the names did me in.
me too… same with reading them in the paper this morning.
thank you, Dee
Sending you a hug Dee…
Bless you. And all of us… as we stand up and do something for the common good.
I’d sign the petition if I lived in the States, I hope it prospers. I’m still overwhelmed by the news and the footage. I wish I could say something useful to those families…
thinking of you all ‘over there’
it hurts us ‘over here’, so much
just to let you know we in england are shocked and distressed by what’s happened to your children. we’re thinking of you. X
there aren’t really words here, but I do appreciate the comments…
There are no words.
Thanks for taking action on this issue. And condolences. From Australia, where gun controls seem like an obvious social good.
