As you know, we are both mothers, elementary-school teachers, and Christians. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those impacted by the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.
The shooter, the school, even perhaps the teachers, will be blamed over the next few weeks. We beg you to act kindly, our friends. Be the difference that changes things. Say hello to strangers on the street. Thank your child's teacher(s). Provide a pair of gloves to someone who is cold. . .be kind.
No one knows the difference one can make. We don't pretend that any of this will end all the problems of the world, but it could help, and that's the hope we cling to.
We - erica and christy - love our children, the children we teach, the families we work with, and all of you.
