Dear Bereaved Parents of Newtown,

It is with deepest sorrow that we heard about your loss. We were heartbroken to hear the news, and would like you to know that our deep and sincere thoughts and prayers are with you. Our faith tells us that all kids are innocent; and that they will undoubtedly go to Heaven for everlasting bliss. 

To offer our heartfelt condolence, we would like to share with you the attached letter from the Risale-i Nur (Treatise of Light) Collection, which was written to a father who lost his beloved son. We hope it lessens your great agony even though to a small extent as it did for several others in the past.

With our sincere regards and sorrows,

Lighthouse for Humanity

P.O. Box 585, Hartford, CT 06141
