Newtown on The State of the Union


Since the sandy hook shooting took place, I still can’t seem to get used to seeing people on television, i.e President Obama, referring to Newtown. (Not Newton)

A week before the tragedy occurred, I would tell someone I lived in Newtown and they’d have no idea where I was talking about.

Now, when I tell someone I live in Newtown, they apologize.

I am watching the State of the Union right now and can see the politicians wearing sandy hook school colors.

Children have been murdered time and time again and it took something so horrific to make the politicians notice.

I am not going to debate gun policy. All I know is that there is a problem that needs to be addresses and it was going on long before December 14th 2013.

Unfortunately for us, it happened here, where I live.

I am going to finish watching what Obama has to say. When my husband starts making money to support us, I’ll know something is working.



About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
