I can't even comprehend what happened in Connecticut today.

So sad.

I don't even know what else to add. Its terrible how it was an elementary school. They said on CNN that his brother was also found dead, and the main focus at the school was the kindergarten teacher who was the mother of the shooter. I'm just sitting here in shock.

Its devastating. I haven't cried so hard when watching the news in a long, long time.

I did read this today and felt a little bit of comfort. “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” - Mr. Rogers.

Not sure if this will work, but here goes:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

Its a picture of a girl. The caption reads as follows: "This is Victoria Soto, and although I didn't know her, she is my hero. I don't know too much about her, but I know a lot of people who do know her and she's amazing. Victoria was a Stratford high graduate and only 27. She was killed today after she hid her first graders in closets and cabinets and told the shooter they were in the gym. He killed her and not one of her children were harmed. I have never been more proud to be from Stratford or to be a teacher. God bless Victoria, her family and friends, and all of those who were involved today in anyway. Victoria is a true hero."

Stratford is in Southwestern Ontario.

I had assumed she was from Stratford CT.

One of the little girls killed spent the last 3 years in Winnipeg with her family. Both of her parents taught at the universities here, and she attended a school many of my own friends used to attend. She was in 1st grade.

That's sad.

I'm assuming Stratford Ontario since this was from "Meanwhile in Canada" on facebook....hmmm.

I have cried so much over this. My own daughter is in kindergarden and is the same age as most of the littles this happened to. I can't even imagine. My heart just breaks for the families.

I would be very surprised if she were from Stratford, Ontario. Solely because teachers get paid much, much less in the US than they do here. But maybe she moved there for other reasons than work.

Regardless, she did a great thing.

I didn't know there was a Stratford CT. I saw this on a Canadian website so may be totally wrong. Regardless, amazing.

I've spent most of the weekend snuggling with my kids. I'm really hoping Leah doesn't hear about what happened when she goes to school tomorrow.
