It was a beautiful day in Highlands, New Jersey. I had a wonderful time supporting my hometown for Comcast Cares Day and the ground breaking of The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play. This playground is located at Veteran’s Park, celebrating the life of Daniel Barden. Daniel was one of the 20 beautiful children at Sandy Hook Elementary taken from us too soon. Here is a video of Daniel singing. My heart goes out to all the families affected by this horrific tragedy.
As Mrs. Highlands U.S., I was honored to share an interview with the Today Show in reference to my platform, “Restoring The Shore: Hope For Highlands”, my community and the upcoming Mrs. New Jersey United States pageant. It was great to see my small community come together, supporting one another during this difficult time. This has only made up stronger than ever! We are Jersey Strong, God Bless!!! ♥
