Dear Rebecca Kowalski,
I vow now- as I have moments after that fateful day, that your son Chase, the 19 other children and the 6 adults will not be sidelined as Newtown heals. I saw it post 9/11 which is why I'm so vigilant with you. Losing an immediate loved one on 9/11, we too were forgotten about as NYC healed and the victims over-looked. This will not happen to the SandyHook26, and with my last breath I give you my word.
Who am I? I'm someone who believes Graham Berkeley mattered. I also believe that although Chase Kowalski did not live to see his 8th birthday, his life (and all 26) can and will still effect this generation as if he (they) were still with us. The SandyHook CenTer will do this for Chase and it will also for all 26.
BESIDES honoring 'life,' we will also reclaim the landscape in which we live that has been fractured and prevent future destruction.
Am I delusional? Maybe. All it takes is for one 'super-hero' to make this all a reality.
