I have no words for this evil and unspeakable tragedy. 

To be completely honest, as a school teacher this kind of tragedy scares me beyond, especially since we have no ironed out lockdown procedure and no security that could stop such a thing.

These news vultures need to get their cameras and microphones out of the faces of these poor, traumatized children. Fucking shameful.

I don’t even have words for this…what a tragedy.

I don’t have children, but I’m sitting here at my work crying.

I don’t pray.  But for what little faith I have, it’s all going to the hope that those children are now in a better place without the memory of how they left.

I was just going to start a post but saw this one. I am absolutely devastated by this shooting. I am an elementary school teacher and I can’t imagine what those poor little innocent students must have been going through and their poor parents and families and omg I have just been sick to my stomach all morning. I can’t stop wondering about them. Seeing their faces. UGH. My students keep asking me what’s wrong cause usually on Friday’s I am so cheerful and happy. My heart is breaking for them!

@MrsWBS:  not to mention things like survivors remorse, ptsd, etc. I mean those that walk away don’t just get to walk away. Not the faculty, the kids, the parents, the community will never be the same. As kids, you just don’t think of things like that, and as parents you try and keep that innocence for your kids as long as possible. Those babies were robbed of their precious lives and the ones who lived were robbed of that innocence that they will never get back. it all just makes me so incredibly angry. And terrified…I have a 7 year old son. How do I keep him from something like this happening? it makes me feel helpless and scared for him and what kind of world he was brought into.

Why are these psychos in the United States continually shooting places up? It seems like something happening there every week. That nut job shooting up the Seattle mall a few days ago?……wtf is with tHis. It makes me wonder about those gun laws. Canadians  usually run around with knives, but that’s less scary than a gun to me. 

I am praying for all involved. children AND adults And anyone effected by these horrible acts.

@FitBee:  I wish there was a way to get the word out about this without blowing up every news station. I completely agree that this is beyond disgusting, and the victims deserve to get the word out, but I HATE that so many people do this exactly for the notoriety. They want to go down in infamy. I just don’t know how that is possible… ugh… this whole thing is just beyond disgusting. I agree we need to focus on sending prayers/positive vibes to all of those affected.

Just saw this news. Why oh why do things like this happen…

As a teacher myself we like to think of our schools as safe havens for the little ones… seems like this is not the case anymore these days.

Hell is too kind of a place for the monster or monsters who did this.

I can not fathom what these parents are going through, even those that know their child is safe, the fear they must have felt.

These children, innocent children, robbed of their life and the others who survived now have to cope with such a tragedy at such a young age.

My heart literally hurts.

@MrsWBS:  Where are you reading this? 

CNN is live blogging here: http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/12/14/shooting-reported-at-connecticut-elementary-school/

The shooter is a confirmed 20 yr old man. The second man being questioned is not a suspect. Personally, I don’t think it’s likely a 20 yr old has a 4-5 year old child. He’d have to have fathered a kid age 15-16, which is super uncommon for New England, ESP this part of Conn. It’s probably some psycho. How horrendous. How absolutely disgusting.
