What Can We Do for Sandy Hook


The Miami Heat brought their children out onto the court to offer a moment of silence for the Sandy Hook victims.

Victor Cruz of the NY Giants wore the name “Jack Pinto” on his cleats and gloves during the Giants’ tough, 34-0 loss to Atlanta in honor of a six-year-old boy killed during the mass school shooting on Friday morning. Cruz also called Jack’s family.

Jack was such a big fan of Cruz that his family buried him in Cruz’s No. 80 Giants jersey yesterday.

Cruz said, “It was very humbling to hear how big of a fan he was and how they were thinking about putting my jersey on him for the services,” Cruz said. “It was an emotional time. It really shows you what type of effect that athletes have on kids. Not just seeing you on TV. They want to be you. They idolize you. They wear your jersey everywhere.”

When my first husband was killed in a car accident way before his time, I did find answers spiritually. One that struck me was from the first time I ventured out. I decided I’d better get my hair done and get back to work.

As I cut through the bookstore, my shortcut to the parlor, I felt as if someone was telling me to turn and look to the right. I did and there was an entire bookcase of a book entitled, Life after life, which told the story of near-death experiences. After that, I read every book I could find on the topic.

At least one neurosurgeon* believes in heaven from his own experience:

As we struggle to consider what we can do, I encourage people to consider donations. An official fund for victims’ families, and the community as a whole, has now been established: Sandy Hill School Support Fund. It was set up by the United Way of Western Connecticut which will provide support services to families and the community. All donations to this fund will go directly to those affected.
