The father of a slain Newtown, Conn. student reflects on the 911 tapes, and the upcoming holiday
A sad video about the loss of the families at Sandyhook. The videos in order talk about the pain of individual parents, the needs they have and the disturbing 911 call.
Compounded with the holidays, the approaching anniversary of the shooting, and the traumatic loss itself, these parents are facing a grief nightmare that noone can imagine.
The best thing according to grief counselors is for them to talk and for others to listen.
One particular sad moment is how the father of one of the victims, has left the Christmas tree up all year, which was to be decorated the weekend after the shooting took place. The grief has paralzied him from decorating the tree. One can only imagine the pain and suffering and our prayers go out to him and these families.
