Never forget.

It has been one year since the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown CT.

On December 14, 2012, 20-year old Adam Lanza entered the elementary school where he shot and killed 6 adults and 20 children.

May we never forget. We keep our thoughts and prayers with the victims’ families and the Newtown community.   

Hate, violence, and anger do have power. But this power is fleeting, dull. This power will never win. The power of love, hope, and resilience has the strength and fortitude to outshine any darkness. This is why we educate- to love, to protect, and to rejoice.
