Today's news is mindboggling and awful, and my heart goes out to the parents and siblings of these poor children as well as to the families of the grownups lost in this horrific event. So sad!!!!!
I am beyond speechless about this horrific attack.
What has happened to our world???
Prayers to those poor families in CT. How could someone be so evil? I makes me sick.
No words is the most appropriate way of stating this. I saw a blurb on the TV and had to turn my face. I cannot imagine what the families are going through, and the kids. Just awful.

There must be some insanity germ in the air as a man in China slashed 22 children!!

Like Jack Benny, I'm 39 and holding ;)
I agree with the President. This has happened too many times recently! What is going on in this world?
Thoughts and prayers to those families affected by this horrible tragedy today. I feel so bad for all those children....those that died and those that saw & heard everything today. May God Bless them all.

It appears that the whole family of the shooter has been murdered by this cretin! Who could do this to innocents?

BGDC, one possible explanation for a good percentage of these crimes is detailed at ssristories.com.
This happened in only two rooms of the building. I can't even imagine the carnage. How will anyone who was in one of those rooms, especially any child, overcome what they saw happen today?
Just sitting here watching and the tears will not stop.
They were babies! Evil and insanity do exist in our world. My heart and prayers go out to the children, families and whole community.
I posted my thoughts earlier on the Beauty Board.
I feel both sadness and anger.
I am so sickened by this event, just stunned and horrified. My daughter is a first grade teacher here in CT and I think about all those little children in her classroom. This affects the families, the teachers, the children in the school that survived, the first responders and medical staff that have to treat the injured. The mental anguish for all those that this touches. I can't imagine what could be going through that young man's mind that did this. So senseless. So horribly tragic. God bless the entire community and especially the families who lost their loved ones.
Heartbreaking. I'm keeping the families in my prayers.
devastating.......no words really.....
I grieve. I grieve for the children, I grieve for the caretakers & teachers involved, I grieve for the parents and grandparents and family, I grieve as a mother, I grieve as a grandmother, I grieve as a retired teacher, and I grieve for the toll it has taken on humanity.

I can't even put into words how I feel about this. Every time, it seems to get worse. How does such a young man get so twisted? What is going on in America - is this the same country I grew up in?
As an elementary teacher of students K-3, I hugged my students a little tighter as they left today. My heart is so heavy tonight as I watch the news. Prayers for everyone involved.
prayers to all affected...It's very mind boggling..seems this stuff happens every year during the holidays......so sad!!

To many young and innocent lives were taken today...why? My thoughts and prayers go to families, friends and loved ones.
The part of the building that the carnage happened in should be torn down and never re-built. They need a memorial.
Have you met or seen my friend Harvey? Harvey loves Judith Ripka and her jewelry!! He says," Judith Ripka makes me very "hoppy!"

They just said that the three guns were registered to the mother. What?????? It keeps getting crazier. Why would he kill her and then go to the school? Wasn't taking her life enough?
This is horrifying and mindless. What kind of monster does this to innocent children? Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected.
I have an 11 year old and a 6 year old and it makes me want to leave work, pick them up from school and hug them for a good hour or so.
