I work with a gentleman who lives in Newtown, CT. His wife is a first-responder and was second on the scene today at the Sandy Hook elementary school.

I'm heartbroken. And disgusted. And my stomach hurts. And I can't let my brain go there. I just can't. This is so, so, so awful.

Tighter gun control laws, please? One should not ever be able to purchase that much ammunition. And your right to carry a gun does not trump my child's right not to be shot.

Everyone - these were children. My co-worker's wife is saying that they were kindergarteners.

I think I'm going to be sick - and this is so not about me.

But, oh my goodness.

I needed to vocalize this. When your head really goes there and thinks about these children, their fear, their tears, their parents... it's just too much.

Too much.



  1. I can't stop crying...imagining. Those poor Kindergarteners. This poor boy, he was obviously troubled...no one noticed, no one tried to help him, no one cared. He got to the point of such evil, to kill his own MOTHER, his own brother AND so, so many babies! Kindergarteners are babies. My little S...it breaks my heart to think that his could happen. I'm sure that person that let him in is suffering too...that person knew this boy, trusted him... there is just so much pain, so much horror surrounding this. And it all seems to stem from family issues. THAT is where our society's problems lie. Family. Focus on your family. Your children. Love them. Teach them love and compassion. It just saddens me. So much. God bless all these people.

  2. Steffany, you are not alone. So many of us can do nothing but weep.

    "Focus on your family. Your children. Love them. Teach them love and compassion."

    You're so right.

    And, yes - they're babies. They're sweet precious babies.

    ...There are no words. ((hug))

  3. I know. When I went to bed, I cuddled with my little one. It took me awhile to calm down. I can't even comprehend...And I'm not watching the news. I don't want to know his name. One thing we can all get from this is to make every second with our children count. xoxo.

  4. I agree wholeheartedly. This is awful and it's awful that someone could get to this point. Preventing this has very little to do with gun control and everything to do with recognizing and helping those with mental health needs – as a society and as (funded) public policy.
