And many people have gone to -- -- in Connecticut in the wake of Friday's all -- shooting.
Two awful walk help what can -- -- -- -- They can to those who have suffered.
And continue to suffer so much that one of those is Jim gold -- he's a Red Cross volunteer.
From Greensboro, North Carolina.
He is as you can see in a new -- in Connecticut right now.
Jim I'm sure the people of new -- would go one -- to say thank you.
For being that -- -- What have you -- doing that is most significant and most helpful fooled the people who have gone.
Through such tragedy.
Well the other across currently has about 160 workers here from throughout the country.
A large part of that group are licensed professional counselors.
And they've been here since Friday.
Working with families.
First responders in the community a large actually providing emotional support.
And doing your -- the Red Cross can do to help these people get through these first few days that are so incredibly difficult.
I -- I'm sure you've spoken to some of those members of the red cross and some of those experts you brought in.
Trying to carry -- this -- can -- What on earth do you say to add to add to them the parents in particular.
Who lost their children give it seems almost impossible conversation now.
Yeah you know I'm not a counselor and so it's difficult for me to answer that question I can tell you -- that they.
The good folks we've brought in here are some of the best and each case is slightly different each -- tee shot him Iraq slightly differently so each -- there.
-- -- physically but they're doing -- perhaps be best to help these good folks out but so very very difficult challenge you know and then it practically speaking -- I I guess you've been bringing -- you be bringing up.
That's stuffed toys for the kids as well.
Yes that Sundays.
Visual where the president spoke we handed out a proxy a thousand Ric -- cross blankets.
You may remember was a very dark -- Foggy night here so we we're doing our best to keep those people who sit on the line for hours.
Warm we also -- -- about 500 stuffed animals to the kids were there.
Try new help comforts them.
We had for emergency response vehicles.
Handing out hot coffee hot chocolate -- so.
We were there throughout trying to make those folks is comfortable as possible.
-- how the -- kids have been responding to those kind of acts of kindness Jim.
Very well we.
We -- lot of hugs so there's volunteers probably be -- best thing we get lots of hugs and lots of smiles so I think for the most part.
Having stuffed animal and and your arm and holding on your -- and that would be otherwise a pretty good.
It's I do you can -- the the emotion on your face Jim it's it's such a tough place to be.
Right now -- in you that you guys do such great work and you see.
So many things but this must be -- among the toughest.
It is I've been doing -- for seven years.
Throughout the country and yeah it's this is extraordinarily.
Tough on everybody that's here.
Our hearts that the -- cross watch this community and that they are.
-- going through and it such a tough time but so it's a very difficult time for everybody here including the media who are.
Who have been here since day day one and we we certainly ask you all and and everyone to take care of yourselves.
And supporting each other -- if you see a friend or relative.
A coworker who's struggling as many people are.
Given the support they need -- seek professional help if you need to.
-- it's as soon as much as anything I guess Jim it's.
Talking to somebody I mean those of us like -- and the -- you say who have been there.
You need to talk about it that we know going through anything and it remotely comparable to the parents of these kids but.
It's it's very hard not to be affected when you've seen such awful sadness some or -- lost I guess.
The ideas and I would also add that you know -- talk to your children.
Listen to their fears have -- talk to you and and reassure them of their safety and.
I'm Jim there's a lot of our view is writing into us here.
Are asking what could we do how can we help but tell them how they can -- make a difference if.
Well if they want to make a financial -- contribution.
United way of western Connecticut has set up a fund so I would suggest that.
Folks go online to the -- way of western Connecticut.
And they will be able to be directed to where they can send a financial -- donation to help these families the families.
I also have an address here.
If people want to send a letter or a memo of condolences they can do so.
Sent a letter to messages of condolences PO box 3700.
And they're collecting those letters and will be dispersed -- -- the community all right we.
