One of our very own COTHer's lost a student in the Ct. tragedy **now w/ donation link
Please keep fellow COTHer, "LuckyDuck" in your thoughts and prayers. She teaches and runs the farm The Ridge Equestrian Center in Newtown Ct, and Catherine Hubbard, was one of her students. Below is a link to her on a horse:
This is Catherine Hubbard, 6 years old--one of the children who lost their lives Friday in Newtown, CT. Catherine's family said she was an animal lover and that she wanted to open an animal shelter when she grew up.
The family has requested that anyone wishing to express condolences donate to the LOCAL animal shelter--that Catherine would have wanted that. What an expression of love for Newtown...from a sweet angel with a huge heart! I was moved by this and wanted to share the info.
Please share this..wouldn't it be awesome if something big happened in her honor? http://www.theanimalcenter.org/donate.htm#memorial
You can donate online (scroll down to the Memorial Donation button on the donation page) via the link or if you would rather mail a donation, the address is:
The Animal Center, Inc.

Let's make this little angel proud! Thanks!"
So, please, those of you who would like to donate in sweet Catherine's honor, choose either a local animal shelter or donate directly to The Animal Center at the link above.
This is just so heartbreaking. When I went to school today, I hugged every single one of my kindergarteners multiple times. Just thinking that someone could do that to anyone, let alone a child makes me so angry.
Rest in peace, Catherine.

Crying now. So sad for this dear girl, her loving family, and her horse friends. I hope God wraps his loving arms around all of them and gives them the strength they will need to get through this horrible event.
