26 Tuesdays: Anne Marie Murphy

Last week’s honoree was Grace McDonnell. Grace loved cupcakes and thus, today I delivered some surprise cupcakes to some friends of mine that I haven’t seen in a long time. This makes our Acts of Kindness MIP count 34.

This week we honor one of Sandy Hook’s teachers. Here’s what CNN said about her:

Anne Marie Murphy, 52
A hero. That’s how a first responder reportedly described Murphy to her father. He told Newsday that authorities told him her body was found in a classroom, covering young children killed in the shooting in an apparent attempt to shield them. “She died doing what she loved. She was serving children and serving God,” Murphy’s mother, Alice McGowan, told the newspaper. A married mother of four, Murphy was artistic and hardworking, her parents said. “She was a happy soul,” her mother told Newsday. “She was a very good daughter, a good mother, a good wife.
What did you do for your Act of Kindness this past week?
