Me too. I cannot imagine the pain of those parents. How could anyone do such a thing? Many prayers later my tears still flow. Candles are burning on my mantle and the Christmas music has been replaced by Mozart's Requiem.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescant in pace. Amen.

Unfathomable evil was unleashed in Newtown, CT today. As a mother and grandmother, I cannot conceive of my child first murdering me and then murdering so many of the people I love, the kindergardeners whom I teach? We will never know what could possibly have twisted that young man into a creature who would kill babies, just little babies. The tears won't stop for so many for a long, long time.

Although I am not yet a parent, I am a public school preschool teacher. I cannot imagine the horror that these parents are facing. I pray that I would have the strength and courage of the teachers in CT to protect my students should it ever happen to us.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those impacted by todays violence.

I am still not able to process the happenings of yesterday and find myself avoiding the thought of attending a Sho n Go where many of my friends will need to talk - the names will begin to be released in less than an hour and the true horror will begin; names and faces of the lives taken out by the 'evil that visited this community' in the words of our governor.

Our police, state police, FBI and other first responders are still working hard, each affected family has a state trooper assigned to them to help these families navigate these days and to help protect their privacy, vigils are being held across the world.

As we send healing, good thoughts and love to the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims, families, friends and communities, I attach an image from Facebook that somehow brings comfort

I am having such a hard time dealing with this tragedy. I can't help but think constantly of these poor parents, siblings, family members, teachers... And so close to Christmas. Bad enough at any time of the year, but presents are bought and hidden. There are parents who may have lost one child, but have to go through with Christmas for the other children. Bless those teachers for their courage and heroism. I teach on a military post and we went through our first drill for this twelve years ago. My now eighteen year old daughter was in first grade and so with me after school. Due to we were doing the full drill from intruder to escaping the school, it was done after school. First we hid in my bathroom under lockdown, with a penlight flashlight (so kids would not be in the full dark and scared more). I commend the teacher who refused to open the bathroom door to the police. We were taught not to open for anyone, the 'bad guys' can say they are the police or MPs. One teacher was 'killed' because she answered the door to the principal. The principal could have had a gun to her head or to a child's head forcing her to do it. (Scenerio of them taking children as hostages) We then did the full out evacuation. One teacher complained that her class should be first because that was the way it was for a fire drill. She argued with the Colonel. He said fine, they'd do it her way. Next scenerio we are evacuating and what to do if there were snipers. Needless to say that teacher was not allowed to change it back and was told she and her class would be the ones to find that out. My daughter still talks about that day after school, that it was scary, but she felt safer that she and the teachers knew what to do. Last year we did the lockdown drill with our children. I have special ed, but all but one followed the directions. One thought it was a huge game and laughed and called out nonsense words. I held and rocked him to try and keep him quiet. (Kindergarten) I'm sure we will have more drills soon again.

It's so hard to react to this kind of incident. A man comes in with guns, and there are no guns in an elementary school. You can only hide. Locking the doors isn't a cure-all like the news is saying, how that saved the teachers and children hiding. A bullet will take care of a lock. And every classroom door I've had has had a window in it, easy to break and unlock the door. I thank God that this kid didn't do that, it's how he got into the school in the first place.

All schools have a plan and drill. We know what to do and pray we never have to do it. I know if it happens at my school I have have MP swat members dropping down through my ceiling into my classroom, as well moving as throughout the halls. After 9/11 we had them patrolling inside and outside our school as a military school and hospital are considered targets. The kids thought of it as having 'Dad' out there. (We have over 800 prek, k and first only) I pray we never have to have schools where law enforcement has to be in our schools.

God bless all those little children and the brave adults who tried to stop it. My heart bleeds for those left behind and are having to deal with this. We all need to hug our children and tell them how much we love them.

My heart is absolutely broken over this and I just can't seem to find any words. Praying so hard for everyone touched by this and for our country.

Morning has come but the nightmare continues. Like everyone else, I can't stop crying. I think it's important to honor the dead - to see their names and faces - but that will take a lot of courage. Such little children to be lost this way. I can't begin to imagine the agony their parents are going through. The holidays will never ever be the same for any of the families torn by this horror story.

Prayers for all concerned,
Lucy
