As many of my regular readers are aware, I am based in Connecticut, in the Hartford area. As all of you know, a great tragedy befell a small community in my small state on Friday. In light of those horrific events, I thought it appropriate to skip a night of posting about soccer as a very small tribute to those who needlessly lost their lives in Newtown on Friday.
I grew up in Trumbull, CT, two towns over from Newtown and have many connections to that community. Like all of you, I watched the news rush in on Twitter, television and elsewhere with a mix of horror, anger and shock. Like many of you I went home and hugged my kids tight, wondering about the parents and siblings of those poor 6 and 7 year olds and what torture they must be enduring.
So, I want to use this space to offer my prayers and thoughts to those in Newtown.
