Silence for Sandy Hook Elementary


This is Farley's mom...
She (Farley) is dictating this post to me via cell phone because of her hand surgery this morning.

What a tragedy...
All teachers around the world are saddened by today's events.
Our hearts are heavy and broken for all of those affected.
I feel helpless...
As a teacher blogger,
I feel that all of us should unite.

Please join me in a day of silence for teacher bloggers on
Sunday, December 16, 2012,
by only posting the picture below on your blog
and titling your post as "Silence for Sandy Hook Elementary" .

Let's show our fellow teachers and the families at Sandy Hook Elementary
our love and support from across the nation and the world during this most difficult time.







"Do your little bit of good where you are;
it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world."
                                                                                              - Desmond Tutu

  6. I think this is an awesome idea! I was wondering how we could show our support. One of my first thoughts when my principal whispered the news was I wonder how my blogging friends are doing and was anyone involved directly.
