Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman is doing her country proud once again. The gymnast visited young athletes in Newtown, CT to spread the holiday cheer in their time of despair.
"Went to a gymnastics club that lost 8 young gymnasts #SandyHook so heartbreaking," she tweeted. "No words to describe how happy it makes me to see these brave kids smile."
Raisman is just the latest celebrity to travel to the grieving city. New York Giants player Victor Cruz offered his condolences to a family who lost their young son in the tragic shooting rampage on December 14. Singer Paul Simon lent his voice at the funeral of a Sandy Hook teacher.
