I would like to take a moment to talk about the tragety that's hit the USA today. A armed suspect went into an elementary school and opened fired. 20 children and 6 adults were unnecessarily shot down today.... These things are horrible. No one should have to die like this. Expecting an innocent school day, only to go through hell. Especially Children. Children don't deserve death. A parent should never have to lay their child to rest.

RIP all you lost souls...And to the shooter, may whatever afterlife that may or may not exist have mercy on your soul.

I heard it yesterday in Austrian's late news and I was so shocked, that I started crying. Everytime I hear about something like that, doesn't matter where it happens, it let's me start thinking about how cruel people can be and, for me the most interesting thing, HOW did they get so. No one is prevented from feeling Hate and resentment towards others.
But still, over a lifetime, everyone should have learned that you can manage those feelings in another way than by violence.

As he shot his mother, I think the plain reason for this is, that his parents couldn't handle him right.
Otherwise it I think it is not right to judge a person we don't know. We can only jugde his actions but not himself....

I feel so sorry for all this kids and the teachers, and especially for the survived children who now miss her/his best friend and of course for the parents!

It was disturbing, when the news reportet about the weapon law in America, which is compaired to Austria's way too weak... Why do we need weapons ? Why can't we live in peace togehter ?

Very disturbing indeed. This kind of incident has become a regular occurrence in the past few months, but unless something is done to reduce the death tool, then we could see a similar scenario in our own communities. If nothing is done to prevent the risk of attacks happening, then what will? I, like many people, desire change for the better, but this change will not occur with our nonprofit groups throwing big fits over who's to blame, and our politicians waiting to see what becomes of the democracy. A democracy is crucial to civil society, but in times of need like this, here is when our government MUST come to the rescue to initiate reform. In this country, you have the right to own a gun. You are also entitled to life and freedom. But you MAY NOT use a gun to take away the life and freedom of another. Unfortunately, that's where the crooks get it wrong. Say whatever you want on how you can improve the gun problem in USA, but I believe that the solution comes from better psychiatric treatment, healthy integration of communities, and the all-important philosophy that violence is never a good resort. However, our superiors seem to ignore these factors. What a shame. Let's hope the President brainstorms some reasonable solutions in mind over the next several weeks.

My whole school was talking about it today, and we watched the news report about it. We all had tears in our eyes, it was so horrible. I heard the children were between the ages of 5 and 10. I look at my brother, who is 4, and think, "What if that had happened to him?" Everyone will feel the pain of the lives that were lost today. I pray the children and teachers are in a better place now.
And what really got us thinking, was that we were in school when we heard about it, and it could have happened to us, or to our younger siblings in the elementary school.

It's disgusting. This year has been extremely violent with shootings. Mass shootings everywhere. As if it wasn't horrific enough to shood down people in a mall, or in a theatre... but even worse to go to a school with innocent children in it and open fire. As much as I am against all suicide, these people need to just save the world the misery and off themselves beforehand.

All those poor people no one deserves to go through that, the scary part is that this can happen anywhere. To the parents of the children who were kill, and those own had family there who were killed I'm so sorry. I know it doesn't mean much but for the poor children who had to witness their some of their friends being murdered... It makes me so MAD NO CHILD SHOULD WATCH THEIR FRIENDS DIE!


To the lives that were claimed today, forever Rest In Peace.

I feel awful for those parents and families who lost their loved ones. It really upsets me that some maniac would just shoot innocent people like that. I'm glad the shooter is dead. I can't imagine the pain these families are going through. Loosing your own children... I've been pretty down since I heard about this today :( I send my prayers out to those families. and may those innocent lives rest in peace.

This is why gun control laws are wrong. If this happened in Florida, someone would have killed the perpetrator after the first shot fired.

Here it is so close to Christmas time, those kids gunned down looking forward to opening their gifts from "Santa" never will now. The parents looking at the gifts they brought for the children sitting under the tree, never to see the looks of joy on the child's face... It is beyond heartbreaking to think of.

Thank you for doing this.

now 8 adults i think.

its not like it was a highschool shooting were talking like 1st graders!!!! It makes me SICK. and then he killed himself to avoid justice??!?! If i were the parent i would be going out of my mind that i couldnt make that guy pay for what he did. Most likely he is burning in hell as we speak, though.

it was really sad one news channel was talking about how they were probably counting down the days till christmas...and then this happened..never to open their presents. the other kids had to cover their eyes.... We need to pray for the families of the kids that died and for those poor parents, and for the teachers. We need to also thank God that there wasnt MORE that got shot. But even the ones who got out alive will probably be traumatized. I also applaud the teachers who hid the kids in the bathroom and stuff.

I seriously could cry right now.

I just keep thinking, why children? Why get a gun and go to a place with young ones who have barely begun to live and kill them? Innocent children?! I know most shootings have some sort of "reason" why the shooter does this, but how in the world can there be a reason to shoot children? It makes me more and more ashamed of human beings and has opened my eyes to how sick and cruel they can really be.
This situation really upsets me because I have a young cousin who I love like a little sister in elementary school. I just keep thinking, what if something like this happened to my cousins school, and she was one of the ones killed? It really lets me see in perspective what this would be like, yet I hope not to ever know the true feeling of this. I wish I could express in words my hatred for the man who did this and how I wish he had a slow and painful death.
May those poor children rest in peace and may there family be watched over during this time, my heart goes out to each and every one of those families.

Why would someone do such an evil thing? To innocent children? They've barely been alive. So you take their life away? You break families hearts, friends hearts, and walk away with no guilt? That's discusting! Evil, cruel, mean, and stupid! And around the holidays worst of all! Families and friends won't have a merry Christmas, or happy Hanukkah because of that evil person! I hope they feel horrible.
RIP the poor souls, and good prayers to the friends and families.

Thats kind of you to take a moment and think of the victims today. Its more than just a tragedy, so many lives are gone and so many will never be the same now. I feel awful that instead of having Christmas, many parents will have to bury their babies.

I'm just glad you didn't bring up politics. Some people on Tumblr are already arguing about it. Granted I don't mind politics but I'm the kind that believe there's a time and a place. And now's not the time in my opinion. So thank you too on that.

RIP to all the victims and prayers to their families :pray:

It's heartbreaking. When I first heard the news, I didn't know how to react. My initial thought was that there must be a mistake. My heart goes out to those poor families and everyone who was involved, I can't imagine what it was like in that school or even being a first responder to this tragedy... I even feel for the shooter. What he did was terrible, yes, but what would ever possess someone to do such a thing is beyond me. You have to think that his life was pretty bad and messed up to lead him to something like this :(
