I just can't imagine getting excited about anything right now. The shooting news is so horrific that it has sucked the joy out of everything for me. Everything else seems so trivial. I'm leaving work now. Going to the daycare to get my little girl. God be with the families.
Who in the world downvoted this??
As a parent it is just breaks my heart to think of this story. The pain these families must be feeling now is just too hard to imagine.
They are all in my prayers
Miss you staying in touch. Agree with the OP totally.
Been dealing with major family issues. I think we are all good now!
Got the same digits but deleted yours. RTR..

I grew up 10 minutes from that town in Brookfield, CT. Hits home for me. Truly saddened and stunned.
I feel the same way. I was supposed to have a date night with the wife. Not now. It will be family night with my three elementary age children. Can't wait to give them a hug.
On call tonight so have another 14 hours before I can rush home to do the same. It sucks, but isn't so bad I guess considering alternatives.
Some bozo has been going around down voting pretty much anything the past few days it seems.
You deleted ME!!!
well said Eddie, just picked up my little grandsons from day school all with a deep sadness for those who were lost. May their families feel the loving presence of God and the support of millions who hold them in prayer.
Totally agree!! I can't imagine what the parents, grandparents, & their relatives and friends are going through. It's a horrible tragedy. My prayers are with all of them and everyone affected by this. My girls are in their early 30s and I have a 7 year old granddaugter. My friends & I were talking today remembering when we were kids, we rode our bikes all over our town without worrying about a thing. Our parents didn't even know where we were all the time ... they just told us to be back by dinner time or before dark. Back then, it was a more innocent time. When my girls were younger, we let them go down the street a few houses to visit with their best friends...we all knew each other. Now, my daughters and their families won't let my granddaughter out of their sight because of the way the world has become. It's really sad!
I wish there was something I could do. I hate to see people suffering
I can't begin to list the lives that have and will be ruined by this tragic event. I have a 3 year old boy that makes my eyes open every morning and it sickens me to know that someone could be so evil to take away a childs life when they give us life. My heart bleeds for those families and the first responders.
As a police officer I know how those pictures will be forever burn into their memories. Walking into a crime scene and seeing death is a traumatic event...walking into a crime scene and seeing 20 dead children will ruin careeers, marriages, and even cause suicide.
God be with the victims, families, friends, and first responders. While these children are now peaceful in heaven, those close to them are living in hell on earth. Prayers sent.
And yet Bill Maher has to throw his honker nose and insensitivity in to the equation. Sad.
I know what I'm not going to do, I'm not going to mope about it on a message board. I'm not going to keep re-enforcing to myself and others how awful it is by posting. ( well looks like I just did.)
I'm going to pray for the healing & recovery for the families of the victims. And if my church family sets up a fund to donate to the families of the victims I'll donate a little extra. And Then I'm going to move forward in life and press on.
That's all I can do and anyone else on this board can do.

There is, see my post above.
This is so so sad for the whole nation. I love all my kids so much and it has made me break down and cry just thinking about the parents of that school. I believe we as parents and grandparents need to show our kids some extra love and patience like has been stated in this thread. I know I am.
I'm having a hard time getting past it, too. As a parent, I don't want to even begin to imagine how they are coping with someone doing this to their precious innocent babies. As a school administrator, it scares me and makes me angry. It is a harsh reality that as educators we put our lives in jeopardy every day. I probably deal with more crazy adults every day than many police officers. We don't have protection or adequate plans. We are taught to hide under tables and desks when an armed intruder is in the school. So we wait like sitting ducks, praying that he diesn't come to our classroom? I was a fairly new teacher when columbine happened. I promised my scared high school students that I would die making sure they survived if it came to that. I would because that is my duty as a teacher. But what about my own children who would then be without their mother? I don't know the answers but I know that what we are doing now isn't working.
