Women of Wilmington Children Send Hearts and Snowflakes to Newtown

The creations will be sent to the children of Newtown, Conn.

The Women of Wilmington brought children together Thursday at Heavenly  Donuts to make snowflakes and hearts to be sent to the children of Newtown, Conn.

According to a spokesperson from the Women of Wilmington, "this is a project that in conjunction with the events that are being run in cities and towns across the  country to show the people, especially the children of Newtown, that they remain in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers."

Amen to that, David. I reread the above article, and noted that no one person was named as spokesperson for Women of Wilmington (WOW) and that all of the posted pictures featured children and not adults. As a member of WOW who did not attend the snowflake-making event, the assertion that WOW is trying "to use your kids and an event like the Newtown tragedy to put yourselves as parents in the spotlight" is absurd. "Someone" should be ashamed of himself and find a better use of his time than to criticize people who are doing good deeds.

I stand by my comments 100%. David, what's more sad here is you bringing up that a man lossed his wife into the conversation and saying that maybe I thought that the "children weren't mournful enough." Pretty low.

This isn't a conversation, Vincent - at least not a genial one. It is a response to personal attack. What's more, the Malvone family are not strangers to me and I grieved their loss with them. You, on the other hand, seem to be able to comment on the motives of others as if you know them. It is obvious that you have some agenda and you need to have the last word, after all, you chose this to be your first time posting on the Patch (under this name, at least) so have at it. I trust that people of good will take your opinions of what is "sad" and "low" with a grain of salt.

Great job WOW! I have a few friends that are active participants in this organization and I think that their effort to support our community and others is commendable. On a side note, we are still collecting snowflakes at The Learning Experience until Monday, January 7th if anyone would like to pay it forward :)

Vincent, as you said that was a long time ago.....things have changed. Roll with the times my friend. Publicity or not, those kids are going to feel better about themselves because they made someone feel good. Don't take that away from them with your comments. Didn't your mother ever tell you that if you don't have something nice to say then don't say it at all?
