Letter: The Sandy Hook Promise

To the Editor:

The Sandy Hook Promise is a national nonprofit organization led by community members and several parents and spouses who lost loved ones in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. “Our intent is to honor all victims of gun violence by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation.” Please read the Sandy Hook Promise (http://www2.sandyhookpromise.org) and join hundreds of thousands of others who have pledged to honor the lives lost and to help implement common sense solutions to the causes of gun violence. The promise ends, “This is a promise to do everything in our power to be remembered not as the town filled with grief and victims, but as the place where real change began. Our hearts are broken; our spirit is not.”
