NEWTOWN, Connecticut | Fri Dec 14, 2012 5:07pm EST
Vance said authorities found 18 children and seven adults, including the gunman, dead at the school, and two children were pronounced dead later at a hospital. Another adult was found dead at a related crime scene in Newtown, he said, bringing the toll to 28.
BLOODIED CHILDREN LEAVE SCHOOL
Vance said the shootings took place in two rooms of Sandy Hook Elementary School, which teaches children from kindergarten through fourth grade, roughly ages 5 to 10.
Witnesses reported hearing dozens of shots; some said as many as 100 rounds.
"School shootings are always incomprehensible and horrific tragedies. But words fail to describe today's heartbreaking and savage attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School. As the father of two children in elementary school, I can barely imagine the anguish and losses suffered today by the Newtown community.
"Our hearts and prayers go out to every parent, child, teacher, staff member, and administrator at Sandy Hook and the surrounding community. And our thanks go out to every teacher, staff member, and first responder who cared for, comforted, and protected children from harm, often at risk to themselves. We will do everything in our power to assist and support the healing and recovery of Newtown."
Fox News TV is reporting that both Ryan Lanza and his father are both alive and talking to police. They believe Adam killed his mother at the house where they both lived, then went to the school and carried out this massacre.
“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
A Parent's Love Is Forever
"May the long time sun
Shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on."
"Where your talents and the needs of the world cross, lies your calling."
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
Vigils, prayers, heartfelt sympathies and love to all the families of the victims. Sadly gun control will be an issue for some time to come, but most of us know we shouldn't be selling assault and automatic weapons to the general public. Bless one and all. Children subjected to this sort of suffering is an all too common part of our history. Rest in Peace

In his short time here in Winnipeg, he simply wowed the local music community with his playing. We listened with awe and understanding as he drew us clearly and expertly into the higher realms of jazz. And the whole town came to know about his playing and his family through the local Jazz publication, DIG, that was started by Steve Kirby.
He also spoke to nearly every high school jazz student in Winnipeg, in both a technical and spiritual manner. For example, in this piece which he wrote, the connection between transcribing, singing and playing is a concept Jamie Aebersold talked about decades ago; yet, Jimmy Greene articulates the concept, extends it, and teaches it far more effectively than ever heard before. He gives us hope that everyone can follow a process to learn the fine art of jazz:
Perhaps that's one more reason why every musician-related family in this town has been crying. A nightmare for every parent, but also the loss of hope of what this child would have become growing up in a household with such musical, educational and spiritual brilliance.
(CNN) -- A teenage boy faces murder and other charges in the shooting deaths of a man, a woman and three children in a home on the outskirts of Albuquerque, New Mexico, authorities said Sunday.
Investigators were still combing over the home on the southwestern edge of the city where investigators found the victims Saturday night, said Deputy Aaron Williamson, a spokesman for the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department. It was unclear whether the teenager now in custody is related to the victims, nor would Williamson disclose whether the victims -- who included two boys and a girl -- were related.
Williamson said each victim had been shot multiple times. Several guns were found inside the home, including a "military-style" rifle he said had been used in the crime.
The teen is being charged with two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse resulting in death, the sheriff's department said. He was arrested after being questioned at the sheriff's office and is likely to be arraigned on Tuesday, Williamson said.
Neither the victims' nor the suspect's identities had been released Sunday afternoon.

NEWTOWN -- An anonymous donor has provided money so that as many as 26 members of the Sandy Hook Elementary School choir can perform at the Super Bowl on Sunday...

(My posts are not intended as advice or professional assessments of any kind.)
It seems most of the recent mass shootings in the United States were by an individual who experienced a recent disappointment in the academic arena. This represents a loss of hope for their future.
Yesterday one person at the University of Central Florida called the police when he saw his roommate with a weapon. He may have saved many from injury or death. Never think that one person can not do something significant.
From University of Central Florida - where my son attends. I personally thank the roommate of Mr. Seevakumaran for calling 911:
"It appears as if Seevakumaran had a larger-scale timeline of violence planned. No individuals were named specifically, and he was acting alone, according to preliminary investigations.
'Times like today challenge us individually, as an organization, and as a university community,” said UCF President John C. Hitt. “The first test for all of us is whether we are focused on the safety of our community, and I am confident that UCF has passed that test. The safety and welfare of our students, faculty and staff, visitors, and neighbors is UCF’s highest priority. The test of compassion is also very important, and our prayers go to everyone affected by today’s incident.'"
