at the corner

candlelight-vigil-to-end-guIt was bitterly cold on Friday as darkness fell.  About 50 of us held candles.  Print outs showing the weapons used by the Newtown shooter were passed around.  Some drivers honked, or yelled “THANK YOU” out of open windows.  Above the Turnpike, a thumbnail of a moon cut a curve of light in the sky,  about as beautiful as it gets.

Obama just read off the names of the dead children.

There is a petition asking for immediate action to address gun control here.

    I’d sign the petition if I lived in the States, I hope it prospers. I’m still overwhelmed by the news and the footage. I wish I could say something useful to those families…
