Today and all the year through, I’m remembering Newtown.
I remember my hometown with love in my heart and prayers of healing and strength.
On this second anniversary of the horror in Sandy Hook, I remember each life lost and the enormous ripples surrounding each loss.
To my friends still in Newtown and nearby, I am holding you in my heart. To my Newtown friends spread across the country, you are close to me, too. To everyone who calls Newtown home, I am praying for you. We are united by our connection to that special place, a place we claim as our own, and we hurt for those who still suffer and grieve, who have the presence of a loss.
Join me in remembering Newtown and praying for the families of:
