Are You Making the Sandy Hook Promise?

The organization is hoping to unify the country to make America safer in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. Are you making the promise?


The Sandy Hook Promise has put its message out to the world for all to see. Like the organization's name, their vision is simple yet profound.

They are hoping that out of the Newtown tragedy comes a moment of transformation, of positive change — for individuals, families, communities and the nation.

We've posted the organization's promise statement as a PDF attached to this article.

Have a read and let everyone know if you're on board by saying in the comments below, "I'm making the Sandy Hook Promise."

We need more info about the founders, board, and paid staff. In theory most folks absolutely agree with SHP's mission and goals. Now please fill in the information gaps.

I am not a cool-aide drinker, so no, I will not blindly follow these people and endorse their agenda which has yet to be disclosed.

I have made and will keep the Sandy Hook Promise. For those asking what this group's agenda is, read the Sandy Hook Promise. It doesn't ask you to support any particular initiative, petition, legislation, agenda or action. It asks only that you choose love and hope over anger, support your neighbors, and work toward change for the better. That is "cool aide" we all can drink.

I made that promise to my kids on December 14th and I reaffirmed that yesterday.

"These People" you are referring to, are the parents of the children lost. "Their agenda" is their effort to protect the rest of the children in this town and everywhere else. http://www.mediaite.com/tv/parents-of-slain-children-deliver-the-sandy-hook-promise-things-must-change/

I agree with chitose Sam your mama must be proud. Those kids were sacrificed to propel liberal agenda's. There is no reason not to honor their deaths they're wonderful kids.

Trina January 16, 2013 at 07:16 AM
That tea party guy sounds a whole lot smarter than you,at least he makes sense and all you can do is correct his grammar? Who's the moron here? I would like to here more of we he's got to say.

i make the Sandy Hook Promise. We will remember those beautiful children, their brave teachers and administrators - and their parents - not just with prayers, but with demands that our politicians stand up to the gun lobby and those who support them. Please remember that Smith & Wesson, Ruger and other gun makers earn billions selling death toys - support Promise and Gabby Giffords with MONEY. We defeated the Tea Party in the 2012 election - we can beat them on this life-or-death issue if we fund the ones standing up for us.

I am making the Sandy Hook Promise. Moreover, I promise to keep the lost children, their self-sacrificing teachers and administrators, and their poor parents in my mind forever. I will vote for no public official who hides behind the Second Amendment to defend the licensing of semi-automatic weapons, high-capacity magazines and universal background checks. My daughter is with Teach for America, and as a first grade schoolteacher, if she had been at Sandy Hook that day, she would have laid down her life for her class. As far as I am concerned, the politicians without the courage to stand up to the gun lobby to defend her from that risk don't merit our vote. Because, like the bumper sticker on my car, "I am Newtown"
