    Let's say a prayer for the families and loved ones of the victims of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I can't even begin to imagine the depth of sorrow and grief those parents are feeling. Love your kids, y'all, and love everyone around you. This goes to show that you just never know.

    Prayers on the way.

    I can't imagine anything worse than to be a parent and get that news.

    My girlfriend just email the story to me. Unbelievably tragic. I wish they would have caught the guy, he deserved a lot more than a quick death.

    I don't pray, but as a teacher, parent of two small kids, and someone who grew up not far from Newtown, CT, I'm crying over this. Just horrible.

    I have three grandchildren ages 2 to 7, and a daughter who works at a daycare / afterschool facility with children in the exact age range as those victims.

    Suffice to say I am shaken.

    I am hugging my baby right now. I am dumbstruck by the horror of this event.

    I hear you. I have two-year-old twin girls, and I swear, if anyone ever tried to hurt them, he better hope and pray that I'm dead before I find him.

    Yup, my wife is a kindergarten teacher and I nearly went to go get our 2 YO daughter from daycare as soon as I heard but I wanted to get composed first. Not to mention my company having a huge office 20 minutes away and my best friend living 30 minutes away. All ok, but just devastated.

    I don't pray...today I did.

    My heart is heavy and I'm just so sad for everyone effected by this monster. I could never start to know or understand what those families are going thru.

    My wife is a teacher and today they had two middle school girls taken out in handcuffs to youth detention center for a violent fight. I worry about her daily but not as much as my Daughter a 3rd grader. I hugged her so tight today when I got home...just can't imagine...

    Personally, I'm glad he's dead. It spares the families the ordeal of a trial. Plus our spineless congress repealed our death penalty so all that would happen is that he would live out a life sentence and I'd be paying for his food, shelter, medical care and cable TV for another 50 or so years.

    I'm not saying anything about a trial. Screw prison time. I am a firm believer in just being rid of these types of people all together. I guess I got what I wanted by him being dead but slow torture untill death would have been my vote. And I know this topic has all been argued out on TB so I'm not going to go any farther with it. Don't want a hijack.


    The picture on the front page of a news paper this morning, in the corner store, almost sent me into a fit. I almost lost it all the way back to the truck where I had to collect myself. I've been praying so hard about this since I heard but this morning, the significance struck.

    Thie first 2 funerals are today for 2 of the little boys who died.

    I HOPE those dirtbags dont show up. The poor families have been through enough and they have a VERY long road ahead of them.

    My heart still hurts and when details were emerging, it turns out the principal went to my HS and I knew her, though very distantly. I saw a friend at church on Saturday afternoon and she was still beside herself talking about "our Dawn".
