> I thank all of you who have called or emailed with you your heartfelt
> thoughts and kind wishes.
> My young daughter is a student in the Newtown schools so I started
> getting the somewhat vague but extremely alarming automated phones messages
> and emails this morning that said that there was an unconfirmed report of
> a shooting and
> that all the schools had been locked down. We did not know which school(s)
> were affected nor the
> unspeakable horror that was unfolding. So I was grateful to receive
> another automated phone message
> 20 minutes later from the principal of my daughter’s school saying that
> her school was not affected.
> Not long after, I was watching a chilling live interview of a young boy
> talking calmly about
> seeing bullets fly past him in the Sandy Hook Elementary School (the TV
> reporter thought that he was exaggerating – as did I)
> and a teacher grabbing him and another student and taking them into the
> classroom.
> At the time it seemed to be a terrible tragedy involving 3 victims, but as
> he was talking,
> CBS news flashed an update that showed an absolutely shocking and horrific
> loss of life. It was beyond any words.
> I had an overwhelming visceral reaction – I felt what I had felt only once
> before in my life – when
> I watched on live TV, the second plane fly into the 2nd World Trade Tower
> on 9/11.
> Newtown, CT is a very friendly and close-knit town and we are all grieving
> this unimaginable and senseless tragedy.
> This is the last place that we would have thought that something like this
> could ever happen.
> My heart and prayers goes out to all of the victims, their families and to
> everyone that was affected and will
> always have to live with what happened today.
> The names of the young children and teachers who died have yet to be
> released. I dread learning
> the heart breaking news of who they were.  I thank god for the bravery of
> all of those who acted
> quickly to help save our children from mortal danger.
> With enormous gratitude and profound sadness,
