I have created these necklaces for the purpose of those with heavy hearts and those that are going through rough times. I think it fitting I send them to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut.
Being a parent of a 4 year old girl and a 10 year old boy myself, I can not imagine what they are going through right now. I can not imagine getting the phone call. I can not imagine having to wait outside the school wondering if your child was alive or… I can not imagine the dread and then sorrow one would feel getting the worst news ever possible.
I want the parents, teachers and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary to know that there ARE good people out there. There ARE people that are sending them love and hope. My Inspiration Angels are meant to give the wearer some hope. They are meant to remind the wearer that there still is something to be grateful for. During these times it will be tough to remember that. There faith may be shaken, I understand. Faith in humanity. Faith in society. Faith in government. Faith in the good in the world. Well I am here to show them one of the first signs that people not of there town or state DO care. We are EVERYWHERE. We are standing by Newtown Connecticut with are arms wide open. With a tear running down our cheek letting them know to cry, to mourn and to remember those amazing children and teachers that lost there lives. But remember them alive. Remember the awesome times you shared a laugh with them. The feelings you had when you witnessed them showing their love for someone else. They were here on Earth to give us those memories. We will not forget them. Ever.
I am not only sending the Inspiration Angels to the school district but also to different churches in the community. I am sending my entire supply.
And when they arrive to you Newtown remember to Spin those Wings and Remember your Blessings. They will be watching and loving you from above.
