Our friend Jim McCarthy, also from the Danbury, CT area, put together this tribute video. Please watch the video and read Jim's words below.
From our friend Jim McCarthy
I don't know what this video will ultimately accomplish. I began putting it together to help me cope, and I suppose I wanted it to give some semblance of comfort and hope to the families of the Newtown, CT shootings on 12/14/12.
My wife and I grew up one town over in Danbury, so this hits close to home for us on several levels. We have 3 children 6 and under. One of the victims, Caroline Previdi, was the daughter of a lifelong friend of my brother-in-law. We cannot possibly imagine what those families are going through right now.
When I heard the news of the amount of casualties on Friday, the two things that replayed over and over again in my mind were this song, and the shortest verse in the Bible, John 11:35 - "Jesus wept." He wept not because he just lost his best friend Lazarus, He wept because it was never supposed to be this way.
I sincerely hope this video helps in your grieving process for this awful tragedy.
