from The News Tribune:

"The Rev. Kathleen Adams-Shepherd, rector at Trinity Episcopal Church on Main Street, was at the Sandy Hook firehouse with the families who lost children and has conducted services and counseling sessions since. Her church will host two children's funerals this week, but on Sunday she projected calm as she spoke of questions unanswerable 'in human terms.'

"She began a sermon with thanks in many directions - for far-flung clergy 'who just got in the cars and drove here to help, for congregation members who pitched in, for the town's first responders who rushed to the school. Her own son is a firefighter who was there.

"She called for prayers for all of them, for those injured - and for the gunman's family - but most for the families of 'those lovely little children now gone from this place and their teachers who shielded them.'"

One of those teachers lived in my hometown of Stratford.
