One tragic day in Newtown, Connecticut

December 14, 2012 was a tragic day not only for the Americans but for the whole world. 20 children were killed including 6 adults in a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. It happened around 9:30 AM, when a 20 year old gun man named Adam Lanza brutally shot all 26 people in the school. The victims were mostly children ages 5-10 years old and they were first graders.

I don’t know what to make of this tragedy. I am a parent and seeing this kind of news is heart wrenching, I can’t help but also feel the grief that the parents of the children killed that day. It’s not only grief, its pain, pain that is buried deep inside your core. I put myself in their shoes, when I look at my daughter that day, it made me cry because I know that she is my happiness, she’s the reason why my husband and I are working so hard and I know how hard it is for those parents to lose their children, it’s like losing a part of them and I know that they will never be complete. Gone are the days of hearing their laughter in their homes, all they have now are memories. Moving on will not be easy, time flies fast but I know the memory of that tragic day will remain in their hearts forever.
