School Shooting in Connecticut

Few things can chill a mother's blood like reading about a school shooting.  But a school shooting in an elementary school is unthinkable.  The terrified faces of the children in the pictures.  I just can't imagine.  I want to hug my kids, and I can't, because they're at school.

We just have to do something about guns in this country.

And I have to figure out how to put it all aside and get back to work.

Unfortunately guns aren't the problem.

I think the best we can do is to be more aware of other people so we can help people before they get to this point. When someone is as gone as these men must be they don't need guns to do harm.

I wanted to add that I don't think your average American has any business owning an assault riffle. We have no guns in our home. I have no idea why anyone would keep a gun in their home assessable to some one with poor mental health.

I just think the lack of good mental healthcare especially for children is a much bigger issue. I have an online friend who was sharing her families safety plan that includes her two young children locking themselves in a car when there brother becomes violent. The advice she was given- charge him with something so he goes to prison. This is a child who needs help, not sent to prison.
