Safe and Sound - Securing our schools



We are Safe and Sound, a pending non-profit foundation of  Sandy Hook moms, dads, and community members who lost precious children, friends, and loved ones on December 14, 2012.

We all felt safe enough in our small, peaceful town. We didn’t think twice about the safety of our loved ones at school.

When an intruder broke a window and entered our locked school, our lives were changed forever. To honor our loved ones, we ask you to join us.

We’ll focus on simple, practical measures to help make our schools safe. You’ll find tools, resources, food for thought, and a forum for discussion about school safety and security.

Join our community. Ask questions. Offer solutions. Push up your sleeves. Let’s get to work together.

Celebrate Joey Gay and Support Safe and Sound at the 2nd Annual Purple Ball in Baltimore!

Emotional Paralysis -2/25/14

It’s that feeling that comes over some of us in a moment of crisis or maybe in its aftermath. An inability to move, think, or even speak. Breathing is difficult, standing up causes dizziness. The ground is all that you can hold onto. You are not in control of your mind and body. I felt […]

A New Year for Safe and Sound : 2/11/14
