UConn plans ceremony to honor Newtown 


STORRS, Conn. (Dec. 17, 2012) -- The University of Connecticut will hold special pre-game ceremonies before the men’s basketball game on Monday and the women’s basketball game on Wednesday in honor of the tragic incidents that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last Friday.

Fans are asked to be in their seats for these games by 6:50 p.m. for the ceremonies. The UConn men play Maryland Eastern Shore on Monday at 7:00 p.m. while the women play Oakland on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Both games are at the XL Center in Hartford.

The UConn men’s and women’s basketball teams will both be wearing patches on their games jerseys in recognition of the tragedy. The patch is a rectangle with a green background, a black outline and the letters “SH” in white. The school colors of Sandy Hook Elementary School are green and white.

UConn bench personnel and others associated with the game will also be wearing special green and white ribbons.

Our hearts and prayers are with Conn. today.  I hope this is not forgotten.  We need to put Christ back into our country, our classrooms, our hearts.

Agree. That picture is so disturbing for everyone who has children.
