The events of last Friday, December 14, in Newtown, Connecticut are shocking, scary, and sad. It has always seemed to me that Fairfield County is really just a big town. Odds are that all of us have some connection to Newtown, whether it’s playing on a rival sports team, living in a neighboring town, or knowing someone who lives or works there. This shooting has not just shaken Newtown, but the entire county, state, and nation. Keep loved ones close and stay safe.
President Obama’s speech at Newtown High School last night may be watched on the Washington Post website if you didn’t get to see it live. There is also a transcript.
