To the Editor:
Twenty-six acts of kindness per day times 365 days per year times seven billion people equals what a wonderful world it would be.
We are Newtown. We are Sandy Hook. We are humanity. We choose love.

The anniversary is approaching. Discussions have been going on across town about how best to approach the day. Taking the wishes of the families into account who have asked to not have a commemorative event that would repeat the media circus they lived through last year, there won’t be a townwide event on 12/14/13.

On October 16, First Selectman Pat Llodra updated her blog to discuss the town’s plans for the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy. She told The Newtown Bee that the message was intended “for the people and media outside of our community” — those who might want to come and share their sorrow with Newtown, or report on how others in town are handling their recovery.
