I am so sorry for what happened in Connecticut. I would be scared if that happened to us at our school. I have four nieces: 9, 6, 2, 4. I would be crying if that happened to them. Our teachers say to hug our moms and dads, and thank them for what they give us. I’m sad because the parents in Newtown are not able to see their kids again, and their kids can never hug their parents again, and say, “Thank you mommy and daddy for giving me life, but there is a new place called Heaven.”
