Dear Families and Friends,
It is with a heavy heart I write to you following the very sad news about the tragic loss of life in the shootings of innocent young children and teachers in Newtown, CT, a community not far from our home.
In President Obama's remarks today he asked that flags be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence, until sunset on Tuesday, December 18th.
Recognizing the long journey the Newtown community has ahead, Voices of September 11th will offer our assistance to support them in whatever ways may be helpful. We will keep you apprised.
We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims, the schoolchildren and the town of Newtown whose innocence was abruptly taken from them today. They will need our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
Mary Fetchet & the VOICES Staff
