Mother of Newton Victim from Winnipeg Posts on Facebook

The mother of an unfortunate six-year-old school-going child, belonging to Winnipeg, who lost her life among the 20 children killed in the Newtown massacre, writes on Facebook that she clearly remembers her daughter. Nelba Marquez-Greene wrote in a post on the social network that she still bears in her mind, the moment when she hugged her daughter while she boarded school bus with a purple T-shirt inscribed with peace sign on the morning of Dec 16, 2012. She claims that her Christmas wish is to “live in a better America.”

The title of the post from Marquez-Greene was “From a grieving mother on Christmas Day.” She admitted that there is no lockdown practice of the world, which could have prevented such an incident involving gunpower and ammunition carried by the shooter. She mentioned that “I have a Christmas wish,” elaborating that “I want to live in a better America — one where our leaders are working collaboratively for the good of the people and the protection of children. Please! No more! Ya basta!.”

Marquez-Greene gave a tribute to her daughter, saying that “sweet Ana, I know our healing as a family will come only from our heavenly Father. I know this is your best Christmas yet — at home with our Lord and Saviour. As your mom I just wish we could have had a few more to celebrate here on earth. You died so needlessly.” She wrote that “for Christmas I bought you a Kindle Fire HD the night before you died. My Christmas promise to you now is to continue to love the Lord with all my heart, mind and strength and to do whatever I can to make sure more kids can be safe … and to send out the message that “love wins”. I still sleep with your special blanket, most nights in your bed.”
