Live, Laugh and Learn. Live life to the fullest, it comes with no guarantee. Take the Sandy Hook Promise to honor the lives of 26 lost and to do everything to encourage and support common sense solutions that make communities and our country safer
It has been nearly two months since this tragedy hit so close to home, in many more than one ways, actually in more than twenty-six ways.
The Jewish tradition has it that the world stands on three legs: teaching, serving, and performing acts of kindness. One could ask why such a horrific event took the lives of those who were doing just that. I will not even try to go near those kinds of questioning or daring bring my personal thinking on a hint of an attempt to respond. I will not because I leave it to anyone’s belief system. I can just share my own.
I believe that it is our duty to do something in response to our pain and hurt, something that is positive, something that keeps us going and growing. In remembering the lives of those who were taken from this world and finding how they inspire us, because this is how they keep living within us, through the blessings of their memories.
I strongly encourage you to take the Sandy Hook Promise. I have done it a long time ago, even before Sandy Hook happened and I will continue to believe that I can change the world one person at a time, one day at a time.
