Angel Ornament for Victims in Newtown, CT

Like most Americans, I am heartbroken over the shooting that took place in Newtown, CT.  As both a teacher and a mommy I just can't wrap my mind around it.  I find myself weeping at random moments throughout the day. Church was my refuge this morning.  As is the case when any tragedy befalls. people cry out and question how God could allow such evil to happen.  One thing I know for certain is that God uses ALL for good and He will use this tragedy for good.  

All I can do is pray ~ ceaselessly.  There is power in prayer.  I made an angel ornament with the names of all of the victims.  I applied an idea from Pinterest by printing out the names with their DOB and cutting them into thin strips  Next, I curled the paper around a pencil and then placed them into a clear ornament.     This ornament will help me to keep these victims and their families in my prayers this Christmas season.  


  1. I love it! Where did you find the list of names and birthdays?

    1. Hi Krystal! I actually first got the names/dates from a Facebook post, but then I just put in a Google search. I want to share the one I made, but when I try to upload it on Google docs it gets all strange :( Here is a link to the Huffington Post list:

  2. This is a beautiful idea. Thank you so much, Carolyn
