It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Oh, no.

My God, it's happen again. No words can say anything that will make this better. Nothing will ease the pain.
My heart is broken for the children and their parents in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.
You're right, Carol, we need to do something. I would bury my handgun to bring one of these children back. I'm sure I'm not alone.

The magnitude of this is unbearable, such innocent children taken and so many, plus the adults too.

I have been in tears since I saw the news on T.V. My heart and prayers go out to all the students, teachers and parents of this terrible tragedy. Have a blessed evening. Madeline

I can't even bare the thought of what these families are going through. My heart is heavy and my mind is full of questions. Why are people so angry and crazy? How can the laws be changed? What can one person do?
