I stole the idea for Act #4 from my friend, Jenny. She posted on Facebook that she wrote thank you notes to the first responders of the Sandy Hook shootings - the Newtown Police Officers and the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire Department.
What a great idea. These men and women risked their lives to save the children and teachers in that school. Sadly they were too late to save 26 victims. However, they had to face the carnage, and I'm sure those memories will haunt them forever. In addition, they had to inform the victims' families of the news. I cannot imagine what the first responders have gone through. These people don't get paid much (and the volunteers get paid nothing), yet they have one of the hardest jobs out there. We need to thank them more often.
