CMOM’s Note on the Events at Sandy Hook Elementary School

The staff at CMOM send our thoughts and prayers to the children and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School of Newtown, Connecticut. In response to the event, Andy Ackerman, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum of Manhattan sent the following note to CMOM’s Board of Directors and Staff:
 

Dear CMOM Board of Directors and Staff,
 
Today’s tragedy in Connecticut is an unbearable loss.  As we hug our own children, family and friends, let us recommit ourselves to creating a place of joy and safety, filled with the irreplaceable laughter and delight of children and the adults who nurture them.
 
May our work together over the coming years for millions of children help to salve this deep wound.
 
Thank you all for your incredible work on behalf of all children.
 
Andy
