As many of you have already heard, a school shooting has occurred earlier today in Newtown, CT. The principal, school phychologist, 4 adults including the shooter's mother, and 20 children were killed. The shooter shot himself, and his partner in crime was arrested. This is the 2nd worst school shooting in America.

Many of you know I live in CT, and my family and I are all safe. Just the thought that something this horrible would happen 30 minutes away from where I live is unimaginable. I live relatively close to Newtown, and even know a person or 2 there from debate.

This is a tragedy that will affect this community forever. To think someone would be so twisted and cruel to shoot his mothers class of kindergardeners. 5 year old little children. I cannot imagine the pain the families of these children are going through. To have to bury their child 11 days before Christmas is just heartbreaking. I pray their souls will rest in peace; heaven gained many beautiful angels today.

I would like to ask of all of you to pray for the children and their families. I will be going to the memorial, so if any of you have anything you would like me to honor/say about them, please, let me know.

To the brave principal, the poor mother, the unnamed adults, and the beautiful children, R.I.P. You will be missed.

I threw a tantrum in school when I heard about this. I threw my milk across the room. Luckily, it was lunchtime. That killer. . . I was also pissed that he shot himself. The man deserved justice. If it weren't for him, those children would be having Christmas in a few days. . . it's sick. Not only did he kill his own mother, but he had to moxie to drive over to the school where she worked and kill those children. That's right! His mother wasn't at the school. HE TOOK THE EFFORT TO KILL ALL OF THEM.

Beans.

I. HATE. THE. KILLER.
I hate him so much, to attack people who have never done him wrong, and to snuff out prospective lives, just like that. Those children had LIVES, OPPORTUNITIES, PATHS, and THE ENJOYMENT IF LIFE laid out before them, and Adam Lanza (the killer) waltzes over and tarnishes it, and commits suicide. *sigh*

All I have to say is that my heart goes out to all the families impacted by this horrific incident that has occurred. I believe no one should ever go through this in their life. These kids were just living their normal lives, that's all. But for those, the ones who witnessed their teachers, their friends, go down by a psycho man right in front of them when they knew they didn't do nothing to deserve this. It makes me wonder what kind of world is it we live in. When it's not even safe to go anywhere anymore. The feeling those parents must have, having to return all those presents, having to go to their child's room, and on every Christmas, feeling the pain of losing their child almost a week before Christmas. It just brings me into tears. My sincere condolences to all the family's. :crying:
