    Our prayers are with all of you continually. In the longer term picture, I’m wondering about Corwin’s willingness, ability to take some amputees for rehab. Letter to Chieftain to be published tomorrow advocating for Pueblo community to take refugees and offering to coordinate. We could take a family in our home. Know you are now focused on saving lives, but just thinking ahead.

    Please know that heartfelt prayers are with you all from here in Sandy Hook, CT. We have been following your daily updates and I have shared the information with my middle school students. We all feel a strong need to do something to help and the kids have eagerly decided to begin a fundraising campaign to assist your group and also Save the Children. Other than money, is there anything else more “tangible/personal” (ie. gently used stuffed animals, clothing, etc) that the students could donate to the children of Haiti?
    Please send my love and best regards to my cousin Ben Massey
    God bless and protect you all.
