Scissors and paper
In children's hands
Make snowflakes that melt stone.
Adella's cousins spent the day with us yesterday. When I sat down to cut some paper snowflakes for the Chalk Hill School in Monroe that will be the home of Sandy Hook Elementary School for the rest of this school year, they joined in. Their cuts went from basic to elaborate in no time.
We had taken our ornaments off our tree so we could put the snowflakes there until we package them up for the Sandy Hook kids. My hat's off to the PTSA for putting out a call for snowflakes and thereby giving people around the world an outlet to respond creatively and with heart to the unspeakable horror that visited Sandy Hook School on December 14.
It was amazing to watch the kids as they worked hard and strove to do better and better. Children have beautiful hearts, and the love being able to create and to give.
