By now, you are all familiar with the green and white “We Are Sandy Hook – We Choose Love” signs that hang in homes and shop windows all over our area. This initiative was started as an expression of pride in our community and in our determination to provide support to one another in times of crisis.
It will not be the first time a television series depicts events that are close to what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School on 12/14 (Glee was the first to take that step, five months ago), but a television show airing at 10 pm tonight may be difficult for many people to watch.
(AP) The mother of one of the 26 victims of 12/14 wished the country’s educators “courage, faith and love’’ Friday as they start a new school year.
Nelba Marquez-Green’s 6-year-old daughter Ana Grace was one of the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Ms Marquez-Green and her husband, Jimmy Green, also have a son who was at the school at the time of the shooting and was uninjured.

I just finished reading the letter written by Mr Carpenter [“The Holster on my Hip,” Letter Hive, 8/23/13] and found it disturbing. Mr Carpenter states that he is a licensed and responsible gun owner and legally he has every right to carry his gun. I imagine that his choice to carry his gun is making some people extremely uncomfortable and upset.
Thought I could maybe help out Lou Carpenter [“The Holster On My Hip,” Letter Hive, 8/23/13] and others confused about why many of us in Newtown/Sandy Hook might get very upset seeing them open-carry their weapons around town.
I realize that some of these people might have their heart in the right place and truly may not understand.
