Helping Hands

It's been exactly two weeks since the horrible tragedy at Sandy Hook School. 

Since that time there has been an unbelievable, world-wide response.  Donations of money and goods have poured in, web sites have been created and committees of various kinds have been organized all of which seek to aid in recovery and comfort to the families of the victims, first responders and the community in general.

My response to all of this has been a little slow.  I did donate money to my daughter who organized a drive to supply various items to first responders.  Today I'll be at Chalk Hill School in Monroe helping get that set up for the arrival of Sandy Hook School students on January 2.

Many organizations are asking that there be a moratorium on future donations of goods and food until it can be organized and sorted.

However money is still being donated to the organization run by Newtown Savings Bank and the United Fund both of whom have agreed to give 100 percent of the funds to their intended purpose.

So little by little life is settling down to its usual routine. But for many people it will never be the same.   No amount of money will ever change that.
