Our Thoughts Are With Newtown

12/16/12

Luminary Daniel Island SCLike many of you, my thoughts have been with the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.  The children, the parents, the families and the town have all been weighing heavily on my mind.  It’s hard to know what to say or what to do in the face of such unimaginable events.

Our community held an event tonight that seemed to strike the right chord.  The PTA sold luminary kits with instructions that everyone our neighborhood was to put them out at the same time.  Besides being a great fundraiser for the school – they sold over 18,000 lights – it brought us all together for a common cause.   People held prayer vigils, sang carols, rode bikes and just generally spent quality time together.

While Connecticut is far away from us here in South Carolina, as the President said “I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.”  Families of Newton, we are all with you.
