    No words can describe how deeply saddened I am for the victims, their families and the community of Newtown. My prayers and thoughts go out to them. May God heal our broken hearts…

    It's kind of too bad that he killed himself cause I'm sure there are a lot of people that would have liked to help him get there instead, f'n coward. That is someone who would have deserved the splinters of bad wood ground into his skin.
    My sincerest condolences to all of the families. Please know that all our hearts are broken in your losses, and may you find the courage to cry where ever you damn well need to, knowing we will all understand.

    As a kindergarten teacher, I couldn't begin to understand why this happened. Friday was our Christmas program as I watched at my class performing, I couldn't help but feel the sadness that loomed in the air. I always teach my children to have compassion for others, tough to practice sometimes.

    I have not stopped hurting so much for all those who are affected by such a horribly act. Those that have been taken are with God now. I pray and worry for those still in this vulnerable time on Earth.

    For all in Sandy Hook,
    I’m so sorry for your losses. I too know what its like to have a child taken from a parent. There is no book but be sure to speak with your family & friends about how beautiful your children are and just know you will always carry them in your heart. Now they are perfect and they are beautiful Angels.

    God be with us all.
