The billboard said "DINER - easy off -
easy on - Exit 10" Sounded perfect.
We were both hungry and ready
for a road trip rest stop.
As we neared the exit my
brother said....it's the Newtown exit.
Yes, that Newton. We were silenced.
This place was familiar - I'd stopped
here before.....today there were black
ribbons hanging with the Christmas lights.
Baskets for donations. And wrist bands.
Today we remembered. And as we
remembered we shared our hearts, spoke
of our children, of our childhood.
We are glad to be together,
grateful for this special time with
our dad...holding on to the
good. Rest in peace, little ones.
