Remembering The Newton Tragedy and Supporting the Family's
by Cheryl December 17, 2012

Today I made a video for the Newton Tragedy. This is all over the international news, it is one of the saddest things I have ever seen. There are no words for the loss of a child, especially in these situations. How do you ever go on? How do you ever make sense of something that is senseless?

You don't. The only thing left to do is try to go on somehow missing a very important part of your heart and soul. This is pain one can not show outwardly because on the inside you are now dead as well. The next few days are going to be a nightmare for these family's. Instead of watching their child open gifts this Christmas, they will close the lid after having said goodbye for the last time.

It's hard to take it all in for someone like myself who is a thousand miles away. Let me just say though, I feel it. I think everybody on the planet feels it. We must remember that feeling it is nothing compared to living it. As you put your child to bed tonight hug them a little tighter, spend a few extra minutes, you just never know when that can all be gone. It only takes one second to turn the world upside down.

We need to take the time to remember that there are mothers who only see an empty bed now where just a few days ago was filled with the life that has now been taken from them. Instead of fighting and playing the blame game take a minute and put yourself inside them for a second. They need us right now. We may disagree on how to handle this issue, but can't we all agree that these people need us right now. This is the United States of America, we stand TOGETHER in times like these.

Today we must put our minds and hearts with these family's. Today we reach out. Today we fight for answers. Today we must be UNITED. I just want to say my heart goes out to the community, family's, friends of Newton, Conn. and this video I made for you.
