Children’s messages to Newtown kids (Photos)

More than a week after the shooting that took 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, messages kept arriving from around the world.

There was a card from the Philippines, letters from school children across the United States, hundreds of stuffed animals and support notes from mournful teachers.

Some of the most touching letters were sent by children to the surviving students in Sandy Hook.

“I’m very sorry for your loss,” a pencil-written message said on a blue crayon-colored angel. “Hugs.”

From another little boy named Gavin: “I hope you get to play xBox and Legos.”

The unintentional misspellings – one child wrote “I hope you fill safe,” – showed how delicate and sincere their messages are.

They’re also striking reminders of the victims’ innocence.
