Letter to the editor Showing kindness to Sandy Hook Elementary School

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by The Press in Opinion

To the Editor:

Even with the magnitude of Friday's events, we can let residents of Newtown, Conn., know we are thinking about them and holding them in healing thoughts.

The children and families of their community are forever changed.

I would love to show support to the school from towns all over our area.

Have the children and/or adults in your family create artwork for the students of Sandy Hook. Even young children can contribute without knowing anything other than they are drawling a picture for other children to "cheer them up" or "make them smile."

Let's have the artwork be cheerful and loving with the words "showing our support from (the name of your town)" placed somewhere on the front.

This idea comes from a desire to show my family's continued support for the children of Sandy Hook. I started by posting it on my Facebook page and have found that many people are looking for something similar. The artwork itself can be any picture that is loving and cheerful.

Email me at lisakfiore@ gmail.com to learn where to send artwork to be mailed in a care package from our community.
