If you have read one of my earlier posts – Books and Life – I wrote about a summer I spent in Newtown, CT. My cousins grew up in Newtown. My aunt taught in an area elementary school for many years. Newtown is an important part of my families’ history. The pain of Sandy Hook is their pain, as well.
The events of that horrendous day made the nation weep. It is important for us to remember and to bring change, so we won’t have to continue to watch other communities and families torn apart.
In early October, ‘Newtown’ will be released in theaters. I’m going to see it so I can acknowledge the bravery, sacrifice and heartache felt by this small community. I hope you will join me in supporting this documentary film.
