    I agree that it is so much worse when you have kids. That this was the same age as my kids devastates me.

    The latest I read said that his mother was a Kindergarten teacher and he killed her and all 20 children in her class. How could someone have that much hatred? It is just unreal.

    I agree. My oldest is 4 1/2 and in pre-K right now and all I can think about is him and the sweet babies in his class, all those beautiful little faces and good natures, and it makes me want to puke that anyone could look at kids just barely older than them and want to hurt them. I can't bear the thought of how scared they must have been.

    Just can't fathom it.

    My oldest (15) got told at school. My youngest (10, in 4th grade) doesn't know anything yet. We are keeping TV turned away from news channels when he's nearby, he wouldn't understand it at all. When they were talking to someone about the Holiday Concert the 4th graders did lastnight where alot of the community was present, i completely lost it.

    Can you imagine being a first responder to that situation?

    Yup, and thats what scares me about even thinking about becoming an EMT. I've been looking into it for awhile and knowing that the potential for these situations is there really makes me wonder if i could handle it.

    The fear that those kindergartners had is what hurts me the most. Last week we did a fire drill with my pre-k kids. I told them ahead of time what was going on and some of them were still really scared.

    ETA, okay maybe not the most, but a whole lot

    My heart absolutely breaks for these children and their families . I work for Scholastic, and we heard there was a shooting right after it happened so we would know not to call schools in the area. I just can't even imagine...

    This is how I feel too. If they had succumbed to a gas leak or something where they all just passed out and went peacefully, it would be really sad, but I wouldn't have this tearing feeling in my gut about it. But that they were so scared, and watched there friends get shot and die......oh, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy, let alone a 5 year old.

    I met DD at the door of her school today, like I always do, and gave her the biggest hug. Her response, typically, was 'too tight! Can I go play?'. I am seriously tearing up imagining never having that again.

    I just realized my cousin lives in Newtown, CT. I knew she lived in CT, but not exactly where. Thankfully she and all of her close family and friends are ok. Her twins are just a little older than my youngest, almost 4. Such a devastating loss.

    Been sick about it all day, heard about it about 30minutes after the initial reports started coming out. This and the slayings of Kindergarteners in China this morning also.. Makes me think more about my choices as a parent and our faith.
