I am sorry to hear that AJ, but I am very glad your children are unharmed.

Forever in our hearts.



I've been meaning to update this thread with some information and random thoughts, but I always seem to find a way to procrastinate my way out of it.

Soon.

One of the victims' parents was recently asking that people respect their privacy, and dedicate themselves to charitable acts this year.  Seems like good advice, IMO.

Yes, took around a month to complete.  It was a slow and arduous project as they're trying to be sensitive and careful for obvious reasons.  I believe that are looking to protect certain areas as sacred ground.  Somewhat similar to the WTC footprint idea.

Google 26 Random Acts of Kindness.  Tread carefully on the various Facebook pages; lot of powerful stuff there.

Note number of candles in my pic.  The number 26 carries a new significance for me.

I'm guessing some have seen this, but for those that didn't...

Unfortunately, it peeled back a few layers of my Raven hatred.

Ravens Angel: Josephine Gay


The Sandy Ground Project:  Where Angels Play has been an incredible initiative.  Another example of the truly good in some people.  Earlier this year, I went to one of the playground builds in Long Island for the daughter (Caroline Previdi) of a high school classmate of mine.  I went with the intention of volunteering some of my time to help build a place where kids can be kids again.  I helped a little, but truth be told, I felt like I was mostly in the way.  In the end, I spent most of the time there just observing; watching this place come together.  All those people...volunteering ...working from morning to night to get this project done for a bunch of strangers a couple hundred miles away.  It was amazing.  That was a rough, two hour car ride home.
