Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes
1ST Grader Shows His Support To Newtown
My son Aaron Ayala is a 1st grader at Pinetree Elementry in Santa Clarita, Ca. Aaron's teacher Mrs. Bottino died suddenly a few months ago. He was affected greatly by her loss and when he learned of the Newtown tragedy the first thing Aaron said to me was "Heaven must have needed teachers to take care of the of the children killed". He then said "I wish they survived but Mrs. Bottino will take care of them". Aaron helped me make a shirt to show his support. It has Newton's core character attributes on the back (we got it from the school districts web site) and a ribbon on the front. Aaron wants to show Newtown and Sandy Hook his love and support.
