A place for moms to connect
There is a debate about what should happen to Sandy Hook Elementary School. Opinions vary from returning to a school, becoming a park, demolishing the site, etc.
I honestly don't know how I would react if I had been a parent of a child at the school. But a park does sound like a neat option. It would give parents a place to come and remember.
What do you all think?
Thanks for sharing your story with the site. I can't even begin to imagine the pain of losing a child.

I have mixed feelings about it.
I can tell you that I can only imagine how the parents feel, the parents who lost their child and the parents who lost one of their children but still have one that has to go to the school.
Im not sure how they could deal with that, having to take their child back to a place where they lost another child.
Some of you are new to this site and might not know my story but I lost my daughter Brandy in a car accident in 2007, she was 26 and we both worked at the same place. I know that it is not the same but I can tell you how hard it was for me to go back to work and it took several times for me to walk through the doors to go back to a place where we both had worked for 2 years, and our time there was good. It was so hard looking down at the end of the loading dock and not seeing her there.
The feelings were so hard to deal with.
The parents that want the school torn down I can't blame them.
The loss of a child is so hard to deal with, parents should not have to burry their children
Their loss was traumatic so that makes it even worse...at least if a child is sick and you know that the time will come you can deal with it differently
I think maybe they should build a memorial there and build a new school in a different location
Someplace where the family's can go to So they can feel close to their child.
I don't work at the place anymore but do go back there sometimes and it makes me feel closer to her and yet sad at the same time.
Death of a child changes your life forever.
I lost my Mom and Dad and all of my Aunts and Uncles but the loss of my daughter changed me and I will never be the same nor will the parents who lost their children that day.
I still pary for them because I know how they feel
