So many children, so many inconsolable families, so many heartbroken friends, so many questions, so many prayers, so many little ones whose lives have so senselessly been lost and the question will always remain, why? why? why?

May God give comfort to your families and friends and may you find some sort of comfort in knowing that our nation and world mourn the utter senseless loss of your children and/or adult family members who were staff members. May we all hug our children and our loved ones and friends more tightly and let them know how much they are loved.
