The events of Friday morning in Newtown, Connecticut at Sandy Hook Elementary School sicken me to the core. I have been beside myself since I started learning details on Friday afternoon. I cried through the President’s speech last night, but I don’t know what to do now. I hate that there’s very little to do. For now, I wanted to join in on a Blogger’s Day of Silence. I have also seen a donation set up to go to Newtown Connecticut Youth and Family Services.
A local Tampa runner has setup a the Sandy Hook Elementary Memorial Half Marathon and 5k to support the town. That registration is through Active, and proceeds will go through United Way to Newtown and Sandy Hook.
I am praying for all of the families, friends, and loved ones of the children and adults who lost their lives on Friday as well as the first responders who went into the school.
