That Could Have Been My Elementary School

Of course the main news story today was the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, CT.  This is too close for comfort.   I have lived in two Connecticut towns, Huntington (1964-66) and Danbury (2011-12).  They are twenty-five miles apart, and Newtown is right between them. In fact, I remember driving through Newtown, one Saturday night last winter (see my message from February 25, 2012).  If that school was a few miles closer to Huntington, it could have been the place I attended in first grade.

Connecticut town looks within for support after unspeakable tragedy

For tonight the candles at the beginning of this message will be for the victims of this senseless act, as well as for Hanukkah.
