What happened at Newtown CT was an unspeakable tradegy in which a great loss has occurred. Many of us wish there is something we can do for all those affected. I have seen many facebook pages and memorial blogs pop up over the last few days but wanted to pass along an additional way to share your individual support for a community in need of comfort. The U.S. Postal Service has set up a Post Office Box for people to send letters of condolence to the community Newtown, Connecticut that was devastated by Friday’s mass shooting.
From the MSNBC news page:
“We understand that there is an outpouring of support for everyone in the Newtown area and we hope to make it easier for those who wish to send encouragement and messages of compassion to those affected,” Kimberly J. Peters, Connecticut Valley District Manager for the U.S. Postal Service, said in a statement. “Through letters and cards, families will be able to hold that friendship in their hands and to read those kind words at a time and place that supports their pace of healing.”
Those who wish to send expressions of comfort should address them to:
