It’s a tragedy that should never again be repeated.
Speaking as someone who works with the same age of students I couldn’t help but think “what if that had been my school?” I can’t even begin to imagine what the families of the deceased must be going through and will be go through for the rest of their lives. No parent should be made to feel and wonder “Will this be the last time I see my son or daughter?” I’m not just saying this because it is happened in America. It shouldn’t be allowed to happen ANYWHERE in the world.
I’m sure families, teachers and school communities worldwide will be talking about how to talk about this in the week before the Holiday Break as well as beyond. Keep the people of Newtown in your thoughts and prayers. They’re gonna need it.
