Silence and Support for Sandy Hook

"Because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in
need to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love
they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories, but also in ours.

May God bless the memory of the victims and, in the words of Scripture, heal the
brokenhearted and bind up their wounds." -- President Barack Obama
