Nelba Marquez-Greene, has posted a message on Facebook via the Winnipeg Post under the headline “From a grieving mother on Christmas Day” in memory of her daughter six-year-old Ana Marquez-Greene, who was one of 20 children and six women killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
In the message, Marquez-Greene writes, “[T]he last thing she remembers was giving her girl, who had beautiful caramel skin and a shock of curly brown hair, two hugs before she got on the school bus.” The article said Marquez-Greene posted that “no lock-down procedure in the world could have stopped someone with the kind of gunpower and ammunition carried by the shooter.”
Marquez-Greene expressed a Christmas wish in her message. “I want to live in a better America — one where our leaders are working collaboratively for the good of the people and the protection of children. Please! No more! Ya basta!.” Marquez-Greene and her family had recently located to Newtown after living in Winnipeg, Canada, where her husband was a music professor.
The grieving mother added, “Sweet Ana, I know our healing as a family will come only from our heavenly Father. I know this is your best Christmas yet – at home with our Lord and Saviour. As your mom I just wish we could have had a few more to celebrate here on earth. You died so needlessly.”
