Do something in memory of Sandy Hook, do something good, hear kids sing

One year ago today, one of the more dramatic moms at my nephew's local elementary school came up in tears just after the school's Holiday Pageant and practically screamed, "Did you hear what they did across the country? They massacred the children!"

It was an incredulous thought, especially after seeing 250 kids from K through sixth grade singing and laughing in a wonderful pageant before the Christmas break.

But it was a nightmare, and it was difficult to keep the kids away from the TV screens and the terrible news, as the rest of us were in tears and shock and horror.

The media are asked to stay away from Sandy Hook this weekend, and for good reason. The families there have provided their own way to commemorate and remember and celebrate.

Check out their wonderful site: mysandyhookfamily.org

It has profiles of the children, who they were, what they wanted to be, and the charities that their families have formed in their names.

And here, we are celebrating by children singing. Some footage of the concert last year that was going on at our elementary school, while a nightmare was going on across the country.
