I am torn about my feelings of this book, part of me is so proud to be a part of this project, the other part is saddened that this project even has to exist. As everybody knows on 12/14/12 Sandy Hill Elementary was attacked and 26 angels found their way to heaven that day. There have been many tears shed and humanity has shown that there is still a sense of love and unity as the nation's, the world's, heart reached out to Newtown, CT and the families effected by this tragic event. I was ...more

I am proud of the group of contributors who have been working so hard to make this project come together. This collaboration has been a form of therapy for those of us who express our emotions with the written word. In addition, we now have an opportunity to make a difference with our craft. While the reason for the moment is somber, it is inspiring that complete strangers could do so much in such a short amount of time for a common cause. The quality and sincerity of the response as a whole has ...more

As a reader, reading each story and poem, and as an observer, observing the artwork in this anthology, my heart bleeds, my eyes cry, and my soul soars. There are contributions from authors and artists around the world. This book is insightful, thoughtful and an inspiration through expressions of grief. There are stories of observers, of life experiences and of anguish. Some stories are dedicated to the angels, by singing their names in print.

The authors wanted to express their solidarity and

In the interest of full disclosure, the stories and poems in this anthology run the full spectrum from a tough read to very good. As Stephen Wilson, who edited the collection, explained in his Editor’s Note at the beginning:

"Don Martin is credited with providing a complete proofing of the anthology. Many of our contributors have a native language other than English. As a result, there are varieties of creative uses of English demonstrated throughout these works. Even though Don and I have taken

Angels Cried pays tribute to the victims of Sandy Hook elementary with some of the most moving poetry and prose you will find. Each writer struggles in their own way to understand a horrible tragedy. But, it is not all directly related to the events. The authors bring hope with other inspirational work. In this, Angels Cried is a catharsis for a world, nation and community in mourning. It is an important book for an important cause, benefiting the victims and their families. You will be better ...more
