The Newtown we all know and love. The Newtown the rest of the world should see.

A short video I put together to show the world the real Newtown.

After the tragedy that occurred in my hometown on 12/14/12 I felt I needed to do something. Something to show the rest of the country how beautiful my hometown really is and how strong we are. This video I believe reflects that. I decided not to dwell on the events of that day but to show everyone the Newtown we all know and love.

Anyone looking for a way to help the families that were affected by the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary should consider attending the benefit dinner I am hosting along with some of my fellow Quinnipiac students. It will be on January 3, 2013 at 7:00pm at Woodwinds in Branford. All proceeds will go to Newtown Youth and Family Services to help the affected families cover the cost of grief counselling. More information and tickets can be found at www.hopeforsandyhook.com

There could not be a more beautiful or meaningful words to express our Newtown. God Blessed us with our town and children and we can not loose it because of this terrible assault. Our children, the angels we lost and the angles which remain, need the Newtown atmosphere as do many who have not experienced it.

Thank you. The video is a wonderful tribute to your town that is forever changed, as are we all. I have been to Newtown. It is a beautiful place. The news coverage shows that the people there are strong and committed to effecting change. May healing and peace come to Newtown in time.
