Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting

As a parent of a 4 yo and a 7month toddler, I have just come to realise that this shooting was in a school filled with innocent young people.

I am truly lost for words on just how a human can inflict such pain and torture on another. How can we as a species talk about love and unity, when we are filled with such dark tortures and capabilities.

My thoughts go to all those effected, either directly or indirectly. May the souls of those who have been lost shine brightly.

14 of these children in the photo have been killed.

I am a gamer, and I find it amazing how quickly the link to Call of Duty is being supplied. I don't blame the game, I blame the gamer. Just looking at photo's of the suspect you can tell that something is not right upstairs.

I cannot point fingers, I don't know the truth. All I know is that several innocent humans are dead, and everyone is asking why.

I think everybody needs to be aware of mental health issues, they can effect us all. Regardless of culture, ethnicity, education or religion. Understanding that seeking help is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength maybe the way forward.

So I will ensure my children are hugged more this day as I fear the future has more heartache to bring as we sink deeper into denial of who we are, and just what we are doing.
