I heard that story, too. That's a fantastic idea indeed. Whatever helps.

Oh, lord . That's horrible. Good on him for giving them shelter, though, even if he didn't know that's what he was doing at first.

I like the idea of sending stuffed animals, too, arw. Maybe I'll look into something like that. I just want to do something, anything, for those families. They deserve every last bit of support imaginable.

Go, weldy!

CK! Extra for you!

Watching tons of stuff on this utter tragedy would have just flagged my already-lowered winter blues sensitivity. I had not heard about the kids hiding in the neighbor-to-the-school's yard. Woah. He certainly did a very good thing.

Quite a set of circles of trauma & grieving within and outside Newtown's geographical area.

arw- good for your mom!

Grace- anotrher good idea ... i wonder ....what if the (if they'd accept) you gave the dog to the school? While not trained as a therapy dog... they'll be leaving at some point where in your dog could be an unofficial therapy dog and be there permaently. I guess one or more teachers might have to keep the dog at their home for eves/weekends, summer vacation etc.

just a thot.


has this gotten thru? the signals drops out (or i could have a double post already! and not know it )

I am envious--I renewed my U2.com subscription, and haven't even gotten an e-mail about a shipment.

Really?? It used to be like that (I even had to pay 10€ customs before getting my 'free present' but I'm quite sure nowadays we get it here from London (or at least from the UK).
I assumed that was the case for the whole of Europe..

I'm sure that's the reason. But I'm touched either way.

Yeah used to be, when u2 was still with Fanfire and Island. But last year's gift came from California. And my Hoodie is coming from the US as well, since I mailed to ask where the hell it is. Was shipped 15 days ago from the US, will take 24 days(prolly business days as well!). So yeah, since they're with Livenation, things got worse for us.

Yeah, the whole Newtown thing is just too sad for words. Like with Hurricane Sandy, I just want to DO something.

And yet I can't even look at the news anymore...Lil' CK is 7, and most of the kids were 6 or 7 years old. I just can't imagine...

Here the press are reporting that Obama actually wants to do something about the gun issue. He's a brave man.

Yes he is. I support whatever he decides to do about guns. SOMETHING needs to change.
