So sad. Hopefully there can be some comfort knowing folks here are praying for you there.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you and all the families that lost their loved ones. I almost lost my brother at that age and just lost my niece and it is the worst heartbreak that a family will have to go through. This attack should be a rude awakening for all the schools in the country. How can anyone take the lives of such beautiful innocent children who had their whole lives ahead of them. God bless them and all or who lost their loved ones. Pennsyvania is also praying for you!!! God Bless you all, Bonnie Abraham Honesdale, PA
