In case you couldn’t be there, here’s an excellent video account from the Peabody Patch of last night’s vigil in front of Peabody City Hall for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.

Hats off to Patch Editor John Castelluccio for reporting on this, and posting this video. Very well done, John. This is how all mainstream media should act in situations like these. Chronicle important events, but don’t be part of the story or sensationalize.

This video simply shows you what you missed, if weren’t able to attend.  No more needs to be written by me: the video tells the story.

Peabody kids to wear green and white to support Sandy Hook

greenJust a quick post to let people know of this very nice tribute tomorrow in Peabody’s Schools to the victims in Newtown, CT.

The Peabody Patch reports that the citywide parent-teacher organization, Peabody PTC, is asking all students, parents, faculty, staff and the community at-large to wear green and white for the day. Green and white are the school colors at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Very nice idea.  Can I also suggest that everyone else wears green to work tomorrow?
