Yellow And Blue For Newtown

In the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy, it’s hard to know what to say or do.

Our hearts are so heavy. Our words sound so hollow.

Leave it to youngsters to lead the way.

Sally McGee — a 7th grader at Bedford Middle School — and a few friends spent much of last night using social media. Their idea: Get as many Bedford kids as possible to wear Newtown’s colors on Monday. It’s a vibrant, visible way to show sympathy and support.

It’s such a good idea, let’s spread it to all Westport schools. The entire town, in fact.

Yellow and blue symbolize Newtown. On Monday, let’s make Westport a yellow and blue town too.

Because, in the end, aren’t we all Newtown?
