Nearly three dozen residents from the Amish community of Nickel Mines, Penn., were in Newtown last Friday. The group spent about nine hours in town, offering support from an unfortunate point of view. These were people who were also affected by an act of violence that took the lives of five children while they were at school. The incident has forever put the name Nickel Mines into a category that Sandy Hook joined 13 months ago, that of communities rocked by gun violence.

Origami peace cranes that had been roosting on the Newtown Congregational Church sanctuary altar since shortly after 12/14 have begun a new journey.
The 1,000 cranes had been made by members of Saron United Church of Christ, in Sheboygen Falls, Wis., on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. After the shootings at Chardon High School in Ohio on February 27, 2012, the cranes were sent to Pilgrim Christian Church in Chardon. In turn, Pilgrim CC extended their sympathy by passing the peace in the form of the Saron UCC origami cranes on to NCC after 12/14.
