Having just heard the news of a terrible mass shooting in a grade school in the USA All I can feel is the extreme sorrow for the people involved. If this does nothing else, hug your children, and tell them what a treasure they are. One never knows what each day can bring. Prayers and blessings to all.

We are truly appalled and saddened over what happened in Connecticut. It is just another example of never knowing what the day will bring and what sadness may come. I will definitely be holding my children a little tighter and loving my moments a little more.

can't imagine how someone could do this thing to small innocent children and teachersLots of killings in my country but none of this sort, mostly heists that go wrong, political in nature or summary executions, this is unimaginable! I can't think of a right word to describe my feelings, yes i hugged my treasures after seeing all these.

What a sad day knowing 20 children were killed by a male that walked into a school and he didn't care about how his actions would hurt all the families, as the parents no longer can watch their little children grow up. There were many brave teachers today, who saved the lives of their students. We should all hug our child or children today.

Hi savypat, We hear so much today, no matter where it happens-and we hear it almost instantly. I agree with you, everyone should hug there children and let them know how much you love them and how precious they are. This is a very sad day. My thoughts and prayers go out to all involved. Blessings.

My mum came home after a hospital appointment and had to travel to the city, when she came home I gave her a big hug and asked how she got on. I know the importance of loved ones, and not taking them for granted because we never know how long we have them for, my mum will be 70 next year. I don't watch the news, not that I don't care, but it's all doom and gloom, and hearing about yet another mass shooting from your good self, makes you wonder when it's all going to end? So much misery in this world, you have to appreciate each day as if it's your last.

That's very true. I guess it's a reminder to live our lives to the fullest and not take anyone for granted, as you never know when INSANE things like this can happen.
