The children who were victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre
(1) Caroline Previdi
Caroline Previdi was one of the 20 young children killed in the massacre that left the town of Newtown, Conn. grieving.
(2) James Mattioli
James Mattioli, 6, was another one of the young victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Fondly called “J” for short, the energetic young boy loved math, sports and cuddling on the couch with his mom at the end of the day.
(3) Daniel Barden
Daniel Barden, 7, was another of the victims. His father Mark is a musician, and he and his family wrote the following words in memorial of their son: “Everyone who has ever met Daniel remembers and loves him. Words really cannot express what a special boy Daniel was. Such a light. Always smiling, unfailingly polite, incredibly affectionate, fair and so thoughtful towards others, imaginative in play, both intelligent and articulate in conversation: in all, a constant source of laughter and joy. Daniel was fearless in his pursuit of happiness and life. He earned his ripped jeans and missing two front teeth. Despite that, he was, as his mother said, ‘Just So Good.’ He embodied everything that is wholesome and innocent in the world. Our hearts break over losing him and for the many other families suffering loss.”
” There were exactly two things Wyatt cared about when seeing movies.The first? Free refills. The second? Special effects. It was for this reason he and Allison were seeing Star Trek: Beyond and smuggling all of their soft drinks in from the fast food joint next door. “Hey, hey Allison,” Wyatt hissed, just above a whisper. His mouth was full. Little bits of popcorn were getting caught in his facial hair— a shave was long overdue. “What did Spock find in Kirks’ toilet?”
– allison was truly disappointed in herself; she’d been getting drunk in public parks and in the privacy of the house when she could have been enjoying the parisian nightlife. after she’d come to the realization, though, she did a quick yelp search and found a collection of clubs she wanted to visit; of course, she’d enlisted wyatt to join her. she, too, had napped for a few hours that afternoon, but as the hours went on, she began to get ready to go out instead of stay in. she styled her hair in soft waves, applied makeup appropriate for the occasion, and got dressed in a black bodycon miniskirt, tall black wedges, and a lace-up white top. allison grabbed her purse as she headed out the door, a small flask of vodka in her hand as she made her way to meet wyatt. upon seeing him, she grinned. “a true sorority girl always pregames.” allison held up the flask and shook it proudly before downing a gulp. “i can’t fucking wait.” ( @wyattrhds )
