This is just so wrong on so many levels.
A conspiracy theorist has stolen a sign from Grace McDonnell playground in Mystic, Connecticut which was built in honor of one of the children who was shot and killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting.
If that wasn't bad enough, the victim's mother Lynn received a phone from a man who claims he was responsible for the theft because he believed the shooting was a hoax.
The Where Angels Play Foundation has been building 26 playgrounds to

One day, musician and author Alex Woodard received a letter from the mother of one of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting victims, Jesse Lewis.
The mother Scarlett Lewis' letter was so inspiring that the musician penned 13 songs about the mother's experience of the loss of her child plus tales of other people with similar stories of tragic loss.

With the Boston Marathon bombings and the Sandy Hook shootings, we're surprised that someone hadn't come up with bulletproof children's clothing sooner.
Now that people in our world have truly gone mad, a company in Bogota, Colombia designed bulletproof backpacks, t-shirts and vests that will protect children from enduring any physical pain from knives and bullets.
While bulletproof clothing is definitely NOT ideal, we're not brushing it off because at the end of the day… protecting ourselves is the number one priority!!
