Victory

From Chris Barbee: It's official! The name North Parade will remain, but by a 9-0 vote the Town Council decided to add the memorial name of Victoria Soto Way (or Vicki Soto Way if the family prefers) to the street the high school she attended is on. Thank you for your contribution to this great cause. This memorial street sign will be there for many generations to come. Remembering and honoring all the victims of this tragedy is a great endeavor. We here, in Stratford, CT, have made a move to remember one of our own. Thank you again.

Honoring Victoria Soto by changing the name of North Parade (the street that runs in front of her alma mater, and mine, Stratford High) to Victoria Soto Way will ensure her actions will never be forgotten.

To:
Stratford, CT, Town council
Change the name of the street North Parade to Victoria Soto Way.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      We need to remember people for the great things they have done. She lost her life to save others and it should not be forgotten once the news coverage stops.

      It is one thing to act on the spur of the moment many have been hailed Heros for that unthinking act in the heat of action.

      Victoria had time to think and time to act,Not much but enough.

      She acted but not for herself,She acted with inner strength and wisdom beyond Her years sustained by true Love for those Children in Her Care.

      Victoria Soto is was and Forever will be an example of a True Heroine may her example Inspire others into Joyfull Service to others remembering for all their days this beautifull Person who gave all so others may live.

      Rest In Peace Victoria
