Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 30, 2013

The recent shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut shocked people across the nation.

These beautiful and innocent kids were the greatest examples of “appreciating assets who could have been great contributors to our society; now we will never know if the world lost another Steve Jobs or Elizabeth Taylor or Albert Einstein. Devastating news stories like these have a high emotional impact, and in some cases will arouse enough intensity to foster civic action.
