Totally. But as long as the Powers-That-Be don't use their powers for good, then this sorta stuff is gonna happen over and over again. Ok...I'll get off my soapbox before I get shot by a nutcase who's been given the pointless right to carry a gun. I heard that Obama shed a tear. That ain't gonna raise the dead. Don't just talk about CHANGE, Mr. President. Walk the walk.

Lovely tribute, Nathan. I hate what's just happened and this is why I haven't read the news in ages. All I find is humans at their worst. I can't begin to imagine what the family, relatives and friends of those 26 are going through. Their lives are wrecked forever.

Bah.

I'm sure everyone is shocked at the tragic events in Newtown, but given the gun laws as they are perhaps none should be surprised.
A most thoughtful way of reminding us, as if we need reminding, of the pain and loss for so many there, Nathan.

These people who fight to retain their gun laws do not think how it destroys other than American lives! One of the tiny boys was British, what choice did his family have when he was brutally gunned down by this maniac. Fitting tribute Nathan but makes my blood boil when these mass murders happen.
