Video Tribute to “A Place to Mourn” in Newtown

Newtown has been the center of gun controversy since the Sandy Hook School Tragedy.

Since the news vans left and we are not the big story any longer, the world has been left wondering.

As a mother of four living in Newtown, I decided to start posting the positive roads to healing, special events and just plain letting you all know we are still here.

This piece is on a tent that was erected by Renee Gilbert, a Chaplain affiliated with Calvary Chapel of Southbury, CT.

She gave me permission to photograph the contents inside of the tent. The tent has been shut down recently upon request from the Town of Newtown local politicians but it will live on in our hearts.

Thank you Renee was steadfastly serving our community in our time of need. And a special thanks for all of those great big hugs.

Additionally, the song “Gone to Soon” was re-released by Chris Daughtry with all proceeds going to Sandy Hook School victims families.

Thanks Chris.

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:)
