Vigils to End Gun Violence

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” – Mr. Rogers. From

People do care.  And within so many, there is a deep courage which comes out when it is least expected.  I honor the teachers who give so much to our children and protect them when their parents are not around.  The Sandy Hook teachers are heroes and guardian angels.

Around the USA, as Americans grieve over the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy, people with love in their hearts are gathering to bring light on gun violence.  If you have been to a vigil, add your photo holding the light for these poor souls.  It helps.

My heart goes out to their families, the teachers, and the community who must feel like the end of the world has arrived.

    Terribly terribly tragic. There are no words to describe such violence. Those poor souls.
