Horror today at the school I went to in Sandy Hook, CT

Children being escorted to safety – Newtown Bee via Huffington Post

We don’t know the story yet of who the 20 year old shooter was, or what was bothering him.

As of 2pm, 27 are dead –  18 of them are children.

My sister and I grew up in Sandy Hook – a borough of Newtown, CT.  We went to Sandy Hook Elementary, and later changed to St. Rose – the Catholic school in Newtown.

My most vivid memory of the school was the day that President Kennedy was shot.  They rounded us up out of classes to go home.  It was confusing and people were crying.

My mother was a teacher for many years at Hawley Elementary School in the same district.

Shocking, when will the violence end????

good overall coverage –

    Things brings tears to my eyes. How can this type of incident still be happening and still guns are rampant and signs go unheeded. It’s unbearably sad.

      Thanks for caring, Ruth. It just has to stop.

    My heart breaks for those children, their families, and the whole community. My thoughts go out to everyone involved.

      I know what you mean, Helena. It is overwhelming, unreal, and horrifying.

    This is another sad, sad day for us. I can’t help but think of those poor childrean and their fear, then their parents being notified. It’s just sick.

    This is so sad. Words fail me. Life is so precious. It is of such high value. I can’t amagine anyone having it in their mind to commit such a terrible crime against these children. It is an assualt to any civilized society.

      Thanks for coming by the post. I am just numb today. We still have friends there, and it is so horrible to think that evil can visit our small home town.

    There always seems to be a few bad apples here and there, and those people wreck havoc on neighborhoods throughout our great country. [More] Unfortunately, children sometimes become a target, yet I find it extremely difficult understand how anybody could do such a thing. Prayers are with that community and parents everywhere!

    Sending love and light

      Thanks for that, Catherine.

    So tragic. So senseless. Love and prayers to everyone who is suffering.

    So many people have been touched by this one event, at so many levels. To have it happen where you enjoyed those same carefree days adds one more level, doesn’t it, Sally?

  9. December 16, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Very sad day for all involved and those of us touched by the horrible act. Continued thoughts and prayers to all involved. Hug your family today!

      Thanks for visiting Forrest.

    Oh wow! SO it was just in your old backyard, which makes it even worse! I know when the guy in Bolivar was arrested for planning to shoot up the movie theater it really hit home, but luckily he was stopped. I can not imagine the horror and misery those childrens’ parents are facing!

    • December 16, 2012 at 9:05 pm

      Yes Joleene.The emergency evacuation today was at my church from growing up, and the President is at the Memorial Service right now in my high school. I was a theater geek, and spent a lot of time on that stage.

    They are sent to try us. We will grow together more as a race as these things occur. Sadly they will keep happening.

      Thanks for visiting my post, Roger

        You’re welcome. I always enjoy them.

    Man’s inhumanity to man continues. I think/hope the new paradigm is on the horizon–free of duality, based on love, not fear.

  13. December 18, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    Such a terrible tragedy (these words are so inadequate!). Given my reply is so late, I am heartened to see the outpouring of demand for a change in gun control laws and a call for more information and improved treatments for mental illness.

    • December 18, 2012 at 2:57 pm

      Thanks for visiting, Lisa. I am still very numb from this whole situation. I just can’t imagine how the families are doing that have children and staff in that school now.
