What Is This World Coming To? Today has proven to be a day of turmoil and disbelief in Connecticut; as an elementary school was the target of a deranged gunman. I sadly report, 29 dead and counting as a result of a mass shooting that occured in an Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Connecticut earlier this morning. As unfortunate as it is to have 29 innocent human beings killed in cold blood, it is equally disturbing that 18 of them were children all under the 6 years.

According to CNN,

The mom who spoke to CNN's Meredith Artley said she heard "at least 100 rounds" being fired.
The shooting began about 9:35 a.m., the parent said. There was a "pop pop pop" in the hall outside the room. Three people went out of the room into the hall where the sounds had come from. "Only one person came back," we were told.
The witness told Artley that she then called 911. She said she never saw the shooter but she later was escorted outside the room past two bodies lying in blood.

The situation at hand is extremely sad, it's not safe to send your kids to school anymore. Im deeply saddened at just the thought of this mass destruction. My prayers are with the victims and their families.
