LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Students and teachers in Henryville, Indiana, can relate to a life-altering tragedy happening at school.
After a terrifying tornado wiped out part of their building, one teacher felt compelled to reach out to those suffering hundreds of miles away in Connecticut.
The sights and sounds following the Newtown school massacre haunted people across the country, including Jolie Lindley, a Henryville high school teacher.
"It really struck me," says Lindley. "I was really upset all weekend. The idea of thinking of school as someplace that should be safe and then it not being safe...we can identify with that."
Nine months ago, children were leaving Henryville schools when a deadly tornado roared through the town, taking part of their building with it.
No students were killed, but they were touched by the outpouring of love and support they received.
"I know we got so many notes of encouragement: binders of notes and banners from other schools," Lindley says. "I know they really appreciated it."
Lindley came up with a simple way to try to reach out to the grief-stricken families of 26 people who were gunned down at their school in Connecticut.
In order to honor and remember the 26 victims of Sandy Hook Elementary school and keep their memories alive, I pledge to perform 26 acts of kindness this week, one in the name of each victim," Lindley says.
Her idea has taken off, and it's spreading across the country thanks to social media and word of mouth.
"I don't like taking credit for it," says Lindley. "This is about them not me, but if maybe more people would think of this, maybe its something we all can do to change the world in some small way...thinking of others instead of ourselves could prevent situations like this."
The lists of these actions will be sent to grieving families miles away.. a small comfort that Henryville hopes will make a difference.
