For the Sandy Hook Elementary children and the thousands of other children in America whose lives were cut short by gun violence, a Mother’s Day card has been created for petitioners to sign.
In an open letter from a father who lost his young son in the tragedy, he writes, “Our sweet seven-year-old was one of 20 children and six adults whose lives were taken on December 14, at Sandy Hook Elementary… As Mother's Day approaches, we understand that we represent just a few of the families who have lost children and loved ones to gun violence. Our friends at Sandy Hook Promise have put together this card to give you another opportunity to support not only the Moms of Newtown, but Moms everywhere whose children have been taken by acts of violence.”
The letter concluded, “Join me in letting all the mothers know -- mothers of Sandy Hook and beyond -- that their children are not forgotten this Mother's Day. And neither are they. The Sandy Hook Promise begins this way: ‘Our hearts are broken; Our spirit is not.’
Thank you for helping to sustain our spirit.”
