To the Editor:
Words cannot express the grief we felt on Dec. 14, 2012, about the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
The 26 people killed, mostly children, was due to a senseless act of extreme violence. This will remain in our minds and hearts forever.
My prayers are always spoken from the bottom of my heart that everyone, including family and friends, will overcome their sorrow in time.
I am concerned about the youthful violence in the United States and throughout the world.
I also recall the time on April 20, 1999, when two high school students tragically killed 12 students and a teacher at Columbine High School.
How can we transform this disregard for life that has been deeply rooted in the minds of children from the war and violence that plagued the 20th century?
This is the most important issue for us still early in the 21st century.
We should strive to do everything possible with the memory of Sandy Hook Elementary School victims etched in our hearts.
