Mt Davidson’s Memorial for the Newtown Children

Twenty-six white crosses stand beside the Murdered Tree on Mount Davidson,  a memorial to the children and the adults killed by a crazed young  man in the heartbreaking tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. We don’t know who put it there, but it’s a moving tribute on the brow of the hill.

    The thought was well-meant, but at least one of those children was Jewish.
