My heart cry’s out for the poor innocent souls(many babies)in all of the tragic recent events lost for no reason other than the evil sick minds of those who feel removing others from there loved ones an ending their most productive lives as they decide to commit suicide, some how thinking this is some form of distorted glory.
This horror can only remind us all to take the time to hug our loved ones and let them know how much we love them,for tomorrow we no not what it will bring.
May we all take some time today to think of the poor poor family’s who have lost their loved ones and send a positive thought or if you inclined a prayer their way
God bless them all

The number of people killed is horrendous enough, but that most of them are children is beyond words. It makes one wonder what must be going through a person’s head, that would cause them to do something like that. He also killed his mother, who was teaching there. No doubt, that had more than a little to do with it.

What I wonder mostly is whether there is anything that can be done to prevent these sort of things from happening. Is it possible to fully protect schools and other public gathering places from psychotic killers? Or is it just one of the horrible things in life, which we can do little or nothing about? Most of the time there is little or no indication that something bad is going to happen, until it’s already too late.

It is tragic, hopefully one day we will have grown up enough as a society and as individuals that this no longer happens. Some days it seems as if a sickness has descended upon us. We must remember to honor those passed and celebrate the living not just at this time of year but all the time.

Unbelievable pain.

The only minor justice is that the shooter is dead. I just wish those people would start with the suicide.

What a massacre!!

That SICKO really got ticked OFF by something… I cannot imagine WHAT got him started… Damn shame…

May God bless them…

Really sick…

... and now we will hear MORE about Gun Control… It’s the PERSON behind it that is the problem… Other people around that person ( lived / worked with ) should have also reported Bad Signs to someone…

A sad SAD day…

Given the enormity of this tragedy, can we LEAVE OUT THE POLITICS and simply allow all of us to mourn for the time being. Honestly Joe, your remark is inconceivable at this time.

Judging from the rash of recent, random slaughter events, it seems that human society has sunk even lower than ever (if that’s possible).
It makes me literally sick.

Very sad. A damned tragedy. One can only imagine the poor families’ grief.
Thanks Jim, for your good words.

Sure it’s a horrendous event… probably the worst of it’s kind in US History!

It’s a reality… So is the probable ATTACK on guns… going to be a reality…

Reality is Reality…

We are putting up our Christmas tree this evening with our two amazing young sons. There is a lovely fire in the fireplace and one in the wood stove.

The weight of this tragedy is heavy on my mind. I need to go give those little guys a hug.

I guess I missed whatever insanity is going on since I rarely ever watch the news and never read the newspaper.
