"It's beautiful," Cassie said. "The cake is beautiful."
“You probably need to eat something,” the baker said. “I hope you’ll eat some of my hot rolls. You have to eat and keep going. Eating is a small, good thing in a time like this,” he said.
Governor Dannel P. Malloy has signed a proclamation declaring Friday, December 21, 2012, a Day of Mourning in the State of Connecticut.
Signed on December 18, the proclamation also requests that residents statewide participate in a moment of silence at 9:30 am. The governor is also requesting houses of worship and government buildings that have the capability, to ring bells 26 times during that moment in honor of each life that was taken at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"Let us all come together collectively to mourn the loss of far too many promising lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School," Gov Malloy said. "Though we will never know the full measure of sorrow experienced by these families, we can let them know that we stand with them during this difficult time."
Gov Malloy has also written a letter to every governor in the United States, asking each state to consider joining the State of Connecticut on Friday during this time of reflection and mourning.
"Mourning this tragedy has extended beyond Newtown, beyond the borders of Connecticut, and has spread across the nation and the world," Gov Malloy said. "On behalf of the State of Connecticut, we appreciate the letters and calls of support that have been delivered to our state and to the family members during their hour of need."
The soccer fields of Fairfield Hills will be bathed in the soft glow of candlelight on Friday night as people gather for a vigil to remember the children and teachers of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The vigil will begin at 7 pm on Friday, December 21, and organizer Joshua Milas, a 2009 Newtown High School graduate, said people all over the world will light candles in solidarity with the people of Newtown.
"Making 30 pies with the students at Newtown High School. The room is filled with the sound of rolling pins moving against the tables and laughter. Lots of laughter."
"After covering the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., NBC News’ Ann Curry wondered what could be done to ease the national suffering over the loss of 26 children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary. Why not, she tweeted, commit to doing one act of kindness for every child killed there? People responded – and wanted to up that to 26 acts of kindness for every child and adult lost at the school. Now people around the country are committing random acts of kindness – connected through the hashtag #26Acts (#20Acts and others are also trending). Get inspired: You can start your own acts of kindness right now."
Can you fault the news media though for reporting on the story we all want to keep in touch with, often with the best of intentions?
Nice gesture, despite the repeated requests of the Newtown residents for people NOT to come and make or harder for them to get around.
Look at you people:
"I don't care what the grievers are asking (pleading). I'm doing a good thing. Yea me! What a wonderful thing I'm doing. I can just ignore what's been politely requested by folks experiencing a terrible loss. 'Cause, you know, children."
Shame on you.
All charity should be anonymous.
I'm glad that all of you who put your personal stamp of approval on actions like this, (maybe the pie lady has a special exemption) hopefully you feel great about overriding the feelings of the parents and neighbors of the dead. Jesus, everyone has a right to their own opinion I guess.
