play it again: do good today

It’s been two years and, sadly, nothing much has really changed.

Hurray for the Second Amendment and ‘Merica!

My heart breaks for these babies and their teachers who tried to protect them and for the families forever broken as families are when their precious child is murdered. I found myself thinking of that horrible day picking up my son on Friday. I know for a fact that at least for one family this anniversary is no less brutal than it was that day. It was a Friday afternoon two years ago.

Do something good today in memory of these angels.

From the Sandy Hook families:

On the one year mark of that horrific day, we know that many people across the country will be thinking of the children and educators so tragically taken from us, and wondering how to help.  We ask that you consider performing an act of kindness or volunteering with a charitable organization in your local community.  In this way, we hope that some small measure of good may be returned to the world.
