New Sandy Hook School Opening

A lovely new Sandy Hook school is scheduled to open in just a few weeks.  It is a very modern design, filled with many features to delight students and teachers alike.  State-of-the-art security measures, as well.  After the incident, students there were bussed to another school.  And so many people stood along the bus route to cheer them on.  Everyone agreed the old school should be torn down and a new school built.  What a wonderful piece of news this is!  A new beginning for all.

Absolutely wonderful.  I'm sure it will serve the community well.  They most certainly deserve it.

@PamfromCT I travel often on Interstate 84 in Conneticut and always find myself (when I see the signs for Newtown) blowing a kiss and saying a little prayer for the victims.

Just a little while ago I started a thread of the Stevie Wonder song , "As" which was partially quoted by the Dallas Police Chief  at the Memorial service for the five murdered officers.  I think the words apply to this tragedy as well.

Re: New Sandy Hook School Opening

Hello @raven-blackbird, Thank you for your thoughtful post.  No, nothing of the original school remains.  I agree with that decision, as we all have to factor the feelings of fear in all the children who survived in this school.  No one will ever forget this incident, I can tell you.

 

Thanks to all who hearted and posted.  It is very much appreciated.  There were playgrounds erected in various towns, each playground built in memory of a specific child.

 

Please never forget those brave women who, each and everyone, sacrificed their lives trying to protect these children.  They were true heroes and should always be remembered.
