In the wake of the Newtown tragedy I found it unfathomable to think about what recipe I was going to post for Mangia Monday. My heart was so heavy all weekend as the details of the events unfolded and those beautiful little faces were splashed across the news. I hope you will hang with me today even though I am taking the week off from chatting about food.
Last night I decided that if those children were my own, I would want them remembered not for how their life ended, but for the joy and love and light they were and are. If I were one of the adults that lost their lives trying to protect the students, I would want goodness to come out of the heartbreak.
While none of us can take away the grief of their families or the the horror witnessed by all the kids, staff and responders at Sandy Hook Elementary school, we are not helpless.
In this season of love, in the names of the twenty children and six adults who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School, my kids and I are going to try to commit 26 random acts of kindness.
Will you join us and spread some love to even one person?
