The Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut holds the memory of the loss of 20 little lives. That symbolism, like all symbolism, is so powerful that something had to done to blunt that memory. In addition, there are those who believe in voodoo, that is, forces of the universe which have influence over what could take place on planet earth. In short, some probably believe the building is jinxed.
Therefore, it's no surprise, reports THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, that a 28-member committee decided to tear down the school. It will be replaced by a newly constructed school building.
Once the building is gone, residents of the area might not be so haunted by the memory of that fatal December morning in 2012 when something happened that society might never be able to understand why. We know so little about what goes on in the mind of a disturbed human being like Adam Lanza.
