There is something magical in a new snowfall, particularly for a child. Everything blanketed in white. The world looks new and clean, even a little sparkly. The usual noise seems hushed. It’s exciting and peaceful all at once.
The magic, the new beginning, the peace, that is what the Connecticut PTSA is trying to give to the survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. The children and faculty who lived through the horror will be relocated to another school building as they return from the holidays. No one wants these children to walk into a school with stark and barren walls. In preparation for this, the Connecticut PTSA has organized Snowflakes for Sandy Hook.
