Where Angels Play.....
The shooting of 26 innocent people at Sandy Hook Elementary last year was one of the most horrific things that has happened in my lifetime. Smarty has a very special ornament to hang on his very own elf tree today. It is a special bell ornament that was purchased from The Sandy Ground. It is a truly inspirational project started by a NJ firefighter after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in the East Coast. He thought that by building 26 playgrounds, one for each of the Sandy Hook victims, in areas that were demolished by Hurricane Sandy that he could provide children with special places to play. He calls the project The Sandy Ground - Where Angels Play. The playgrounds each have a touch of the child and are brilliantly colored and decorated. I sat here a few nights ago and read each story, looked at each playground and shed some tears. I can't imagine a better way to celebrate these kids and teachers. You can purchase an ornament at http://www.thesandygroundproject.org for just $5.00 and all of the proceeds go to the project. I am in no way affiliated with this group and have not participated in any builds but I am inspired by William Lavin and his team of Angels here on Earth.
