a day of remembrance

Sandy Hook Elementary School

On Monday, December 17, members of the blogging community are observing
a day of remembrance for the people of Newtown, CT.

MANY BLOGGERS   ~  INCLUDING  POETRY,  WRITING,  CRAFT,  COOKING,  LIFESTYLE  AND  DIY BLOGGERS  ~  ARE DESIGNATING TODAY AS A DAY OF REMEMBRANCE  FOR EVERY PRECIOUS LIFE LOST LAST FRIDAY IN CONNECTICUT.  OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO THE SURVIVORS AND EVERYONE AFFECTED BY THIS HORRIFIC TRAGEDY.

TO HONOR THE MEMORY OF LIVES CUT SHORT,  WE CHOOSE TO STEP AWAY FROM OUR BLOGS AND COMPUTERS TODAY TO CELEBRATE THE GIFT OF LIFE AND THOSE WE LOVE MOST:  OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN,  OUR FAMILIES,  OUR FRIENDS AND COWORKERS,  THE TEACHERS AND PRINCIPALS AT OUR SCHOOLS,  OUR COMMUNITIES.  WE’RE HOLDING OUR OWN CHILDREN A LITTLE CLOSER AND REACHING OUT TO OUR FAMILIES AND NEIGHBORS TO GIVE THANKS FOR THE MOMENTS WE HAVE TOGETHER.

THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY TODAY.  WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US IN REMEMBERING THOSE LOST AND CELEBRATING THE LIVES OF THOSE WE LOVE.  WE WISH EVERYONE A SAFE HOLIDAY.
