A Tragedy in Connecticut

Editor, the Advocate:

T'was a sad day in a sleepy little town,

When Adam Lanza shot so many down.

A time when there should be so much joy.

So many families lost a little girl or boy.

Then there's the teachers, with so much love,

Gave their lives, with love from above.

With all the gifts under the trees,

Some of the children will never see.

But now they're safe, and have no fear.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
