For those of you have not heard of this tragedy here is what I know.
Dressed in black fatigues and a military vest, an armed man walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut Friday and opened fire, shattering the quiet of this southern New England town and leaving the nation reeling at the number of young lives lost.
26 people are now dead -- 20 of them children. Among the six adults killed were Dawn Hochsprung, the school's beloved principal, and school psychologist Mary Sherlach.
The shooter, identified by three law enforcement officials as 20-year-old Adam Lanza, also was killed, apparently by his own hand. Separately, his mother's body was found at a Newtown residence.
I can only sit here and wonder. How is someone capable of such an act? How can another human being take the life of another? a child no less.
Children were killed. ages 5-10.
My little brother is 10 and All I want to do is call him and tell him I love him.
I cried last night. I cried for the parents who will spend Christmas without hearing the voice of their little girl or boys saying Santa has come.
I cried for all the Children who lived, but have had their innocence torn from their souls.
I cried for the teachers, the principal and the Psychologist who's own families would never again here them speak or laugh.
This tragedy has shaken my country to it's very core. and all I want to do is sit here and cry.
Hug the ones you love. hold them close and be grateful you have them by you tonight.
Bats and Kisses and lots of love,
