    reflection on this tragedy. As a school teacher, I tried to imagine myself in this position. I realized how painful it would be to have the name of the school I teach in, or the name of the town where I teach brought up again and again in association with such a sad and horrific event. I feel for the residents of Newtown, and can sympathize with a need for change, but don't think that 12/14 will catch on. The school and town names are too deeply embedded in our hearts and minds.
