…The shooting that happened in Connecticut Friday was horrific.  “Horrific” isn’t even a strong enough word.  Killing innocent people.  Killing anyone.  Killing children.  It’s unimaginable.  How can/could a single person be so evil, create such destruction, and leave years and years of unending grief behind.

On Facebook many of my friends are writers and mostly liberal.  Quite a few of them posted their vitriolic views about guns.  I understand their anger, but such posts only seem to create a bigger chasm, Red versus Blue states, etc.  I think Facebook is the last place to announce your political or religious views.

…Here’s what former Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee said about the shooting:

“We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools. Should we be surprised that schools would become places of carnage?”

…Here’s what Rush Limbaugh had to say:

“It is terrible, incomprehensible but I’m going to tell you something – as we sit here at this very moment, you know it and I know it – there are liberals trying to find a way to blame this on conservatives or Republicans,” Limbaugh told his audience.

Good Lord.  Really?  Can’t people just grieve and support all those families and friends.

It was awful to watch news coverage.  My heart broke a dozen times.  I can’t even fathom what those people are going through.

Sorry this is such a sad post, but I feel broken.
