December 14, 2012, will be engraved in our hearts and memories forever as a dark and terrible day in our national history.

It was a day when the unthinkable, the unimaginable, happened in Newtown, Connecticut.

It was a day when every parent’s worst nightmare became a reality.

It was a day when educators heroically defended their children, making the ultimate sacrifice.

It was a day we will never forget.

It was the worst day of 2012.
