Remembering Sandy Hook

On this first day of finals week at UIS just a week before Christmas,   I hope that we all will send our best wishes to the residents of Newtown, Connecticut where the tragic school shooting occurred on Friday.  Our thoughts and prayers are especially with the families of the twenty children, six and seven years old, and six school staff whose lives were lost.  No words are adequate to express the magnitude of this terrible tragedy, but we are inspired by the heroism that saved the lives of many more children and we want the Sandy Hook Elementary School community to know that they are not alone in their sorrow.
