Sad, Mad and Devastated All at the Same Time

We, like you, are devastated by the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary that happened last Friday. We encourage everyone to keep each and every angel that was taken too early from their families in CT in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days, weeks and months.

You’re sure it’s horrible to have a troubled child? Smdh. So unbelievably disappointed.

I agree with you. I think one good point you made was about the media interviewing these little kids immediately following the shooting. I can’t believe their parents were so willing to parade their little ones around and make them publicly relive their trauma. I understand that people want to know what happened, but the media in our society takes it too far.

Good points. It’s all very sad. I sometimes feel better when I lay it all down like you did.

As far as “bonding” with a child, a gun range is never really the time or place to take your child until they are older and are out of the high school danger zone of bullying and other high stress, hormone induced decisions.

And yes as a mom we give up everything for… Read more »
i have followed you for a while now and i agree that it is heart breaking and sad. I agree the guns should not have been in the home. But I am sad and mad at you for taking everything the media is saying as true. You did not walk in this woman’s shoes and have no clue about her daily struggles with her son. You have no clue what she was doing for her son. You also seem to have no clue about how hard it is to get mental health car for a child. please read this and… Read more »
Hollie, I know you said you were writing and not editing, but this is perfectly written. When I heard that she took him to the shooting range I was more outraged and heartbroken. I didn’t think it would be possible to feel that way because of how outraged and heartbroken I already was. She did this. Yes, he puled the trigger, but she allowed him to be taught how. There are things that are very wrong with all of this and we will never know exactly what transpired and why. I keep wondering, was this a plan of hers and… Read more »



i say ban all violent and war related video games, also violence in any form (especially gun related) in kids tv shows. exposes too many kids to killing without consequences!!
