Massive tragedy in Connecticut Us. 18 kids are dead. At this time not sure how many of the staff have also been killed.Can you imagine the parents hearing this news days before Christmas.I am hoping none of wee Mags grand kids are involved in this.

Mags, I was thinking about you and hoping that none of your g'children were involved.
Thank God your g'daughter is safe.

God help the parents of the murdered children, it's tragic.
God only knows how they will get through this. It's bad enough at anytime, but somehow it's worse at this time of year when the children and their Parents would be looking forward to Christmas.
I can't imagine how those Parents will ever enjoy Christmas again.
My sympathy and prayers are with them.

Apparently the mother of the gunman is a Teacher in the School and she was also killed as well as most of children in her classroom.

The gunman is dead and his older brother has been arrested.

And the citizens of the United States Of America will continue to assert their right to bear arms in defence of themselves, despite the fact that most of those arms are held by career criminals, persons with insecure mind sets or others who are just plain crazy and with an inclination to shooting anyone, while blaming their actions on an insecure upbringing.

While my thoughts, and those of just about everyone else on this forum, go out to the victims and their families, the sad fact is that nothing will change and these devastating events will continue to occur until someone in power, in the world's so called greatest country, grabs the 'gun lobby' bull by the horns and decides to do something about it, despite what it may do to their political careers !

Sadly, I can't remember any politician, world wide, giving up his position for a cause that might deem him or her unelectable the next time the people in his constituency vote. The pay packet is too great to even consider it !
