    Tribute to the Newton children and to all all those whose wounds have made fresh


    Sudden tragedy brings many different responses. I stand and applaud the Newton child"s choir that formed to sing in honor of their friends


    I  am a Canadian and therefore did not experience 911 from the prospective  of an American.I can only watch on and weep for the thousands lost that  day.

      when the children died in Newton it took me back to 911  and not only the event but the lives that are still affected today for  one act of terroism

    As a mom who lost her daughter to a train  crash two years ago I know the pain is always there,the loss felt in  places deep inside me I never knew were there.

    The Newton tragedy refreshed in me our grief at the loss of our daughter so instantly; so final.


    Then  I remembered all the prayers that went up for the 911 families and how  the sorrow of Newton would only refresh their sorrow.  So today as a  Canadian I not only pray comfort for each of you and how your lives have  been changed forever in Newton yet also those families whose wounds has  been made fresh by this tragedy;to the 911 victims and to the  courageous men and women who fight every day for those who cannot fight  for themselves but want help to learn how.

       I have been watching  a tv series called  Army wives and just like them I got a knock on the  door that changed my life.  I want to pay tribute to Newton but also to  all the fresh wounds opened up in all those of whose lives were changed  by 911 and every mom,dad,wife,son,grandmother,or daughter that have  their lives changed by a knock at the door.
