I often wonder...what drives people to do crazy things. This world has made a very bad turn.

Grant Schneider it was so hard watching the news and thinking of those beautiful young lives lost. 

Wayne Martin I couldn't agree more. I saw the fingers coming out to point at others but there will be time enough for that.

Brian England it is too much, too often.

Joan Cox that's only a small piece of the solution. 

Leanne Smith so true. Maybe sharing our kindness towards others is a start.

Kathy I have a 7 year old granddaughter.  I can't imagine what my life would be like if I was to lose her in a horrifying shooting like this.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I ask myself all of the time. This kind of question was why I studied psychology and also why I did not continue to pursue it. 

Roy Kelley sadly that list is too long and I fear it will continue to grow.

Ray Henson we can't be in such a hurry to blame someone or something that we forget about the beautiful souls that were lost. 

Will Hamm I agree. Those poor families and the children...it is so sad.

ExactlyAnna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker I had a lump in my throat last night and for the first time in years had nightmares.

Indeed, there are no words for this horror.

My one daughter called me this morning after dropping off one of her kids at schools, in tears. No doubt there were many parents having a tough time yesterday, and today, and for days to come.

I think one of the things that has brought me to tears today, is the fact that I know it is likely to occur again and again.  Our elected officials need to step up and do something proactively, in addition to offering up their thoughts and prayers!

The word "angry" comes to mind. Every time this happens I get angrier. We need far more than thoughts and prayers
