    Default I think we may all need a hug...

    ...from each other to reaffirm that the world isn't completely depraved, after hearing the absolutely heartbreaking news coming out of Connecticut.

    We're opening the OT forum so folks have a place to talk and try to deal with this horrible news.

    Our hearts go out to the families affected...who isn't?

    Thanks, Mod 1. I'm definitely in need of a hug. What is this world coming to?

    I am so, so horrified by this. The bastard was wearing a bulletproof vest, too. What kind of deranged person goes into a school and opens fire on little kids?

    My thoughts are with all the affected families of the children and adults who died.

    OMG. I have friends in that area. A friend reports one gunman is dead, but a second one is at large. Twenty-five dead. From initial reports, sounds like mostly children killed. Makes me weep for humanity. I just don't understand.

    As a mother, I cannot imagine. My thoughts and prayers are with those families in the difficult days ahead.

    NRA members,/ supporters tell me again please, why anyone would need semiautomatic weapons; Was Newtown under imminent threat of invasion?

    A school for K-4 grades and the gunmen were wearing bulletproof vests.

    I have a 9YO grandson. I. . . just . . . can't . . . fathom the brutality of the gunmen.

    I don't know what's causing these shootings, but it's getting worse, not better.
