MY GOD! I am sitting here with tears rolling from my eyes as I type this. I don’t post that to illicit sympathy, only to relay the emotion, the frustration and the intense anger I am feeling at this time.
To the Mothers and Fathers, the teachers, their families and friends and ALL of the folks involved, my deepest sympathies to you and yours on this tragic, and unbelievable loss of life in this horrendous act of violence.
I don’t know all the details, the NEWS sources don’t know ALL the details, at this time no one knows exactly what happened or why.
Every report I am hearing says that all information is *unconfirmed* at this time.
That’s the way it goes with a breaking story, the news is going to get it out there and then make corrections and retractions as the situation dictates, and that’s not something I take issue with, it’s the news business and it’s what they do.
I am not going to launch on a political tirade, this is NOT the time or the place. Now we need to ALL focus on the tremendous loss of life that these folks in Connecticut have suffered and support them in their loss.
You see, as expected, some news sources are already discussing an *assault weapons ban* and the idea that the shooter was carrying a high-capacity handgun, reportedly a Glock 9mm pistol. I am sure that any additional weapons carried by the shooter will come to light in the investigation, and I am sure that this is going to give the anti-gun groups in this nation another excuse to attack the Second Amendment, but this is NOT the time or place to take up those issues.
I have grandsons in the age group of these kids, I am devastated by what has happened and I only offer my most heartfelt sympathies to ALL involved.
To the Police, Fire and other emergency responders, STAY STRONG, you are needed and appreciated, and I know how this affects you wonderful folks as well.
I will offer more as details come out, but for now this is the best I can do. God PLEASE bless and keep all in your embrace!
