I have thought a lot about the tragic events that took place on Friday. I have wanted to help in some way. I have wanted to reach out and let these families and these children know that as a nation we are praying for them and wishing the best for them. The thought came to me that maybe I could convince my family and friends to help me make enough quilts to help the community of Newtown.
When my brother died, we had loving neighbors that made each of us kids a blanket to remember my brother. During those hard days that followed I’d wrap myself up in that blanket and feel close to my brother. It’s one of my prize possessions to this day.
Growing up, a homemade flannel quilt always made me feel safe and loved. That is the feeling I would like to give these children. I know that it will take much more than a quilt but maybe a quilt could help a little.
