I was young when we moved. Too young to remember much. Probably my fondest memory is our neighbor, Ray, and his introduction to Sesame Street. I have the revolutionary-war era horseshoe that was tilled up out of our yard in Newtown resting on our mantle in Maryland today.
I wish those were the only things I associated with Newtown. I wish Newtown was only known as the birthplace of Laura Kurz, C-List Scrapbooking Celebrity. I wish you could put your child on a bus, drop them off at a front door of their school, their school, and know they were safe.
