Since the shootings a week a go we’ve read and heard that a lot of kids are feeling scared and sad.
Some of our community members are part of planning a citywide day of healing for Tucson’s children.
The event is offered for Tucson’s children and their families by clergy, musicians, artists, counselors, educators, and leaders from a variety of faith traditions and community organizations.
Sunday, January 23, 2010
3 pm to 5 pm
Focus is for children ages 5 to 12, but families with children older and younger are encouraged to attend together.
Children and their families will have a safe space to express feelings, receive support for navigating grief and trauma, and turn despair and fear into acts of love, kindness, and compassion.
A short multi-faith service for children and their families will begin and end the afternoon. Children will have an opportunity to create a piece of communal art for the community, sing, hear stories, be part of small group storytelling about their own feelings, pet animals, and climb inside a “peace tent.”
