20. That number keeps repeating in my head. 20 kids whose lives were cut short by an evil bastard. 20 kids who went to school this morning happy that today was Friday. 20 kids who were in the place where they should have been safe. 20 kids who lost their lives today. I cannot believe this. What kind of monster walks into an elementary school and guns down 20 kids? I do not have a problem with guns. I don't like them. Guns don't kill people. People kill people. I will not write the killers name. He does not get to be infamous. He was a monster. I don't want to hear a damn thing about his mental state. It's a cop out that I don't adhere to. He purchased a semi automatic gun, ammo and a bullet proof vest. He killed his mom. He drove to a school, walked in and opened fire on kids. Unstable? Nope. Just plain evil, crazy.
My heart breaks for the murdered kids and their grieving families. I cannot imagine how they get over this. A total of 28 dead today. The killer took his life like the coward he was. He has d numerous families, a community and the little town of Newtown, Connecticut. Excuse my French but fuck the shooter. This is horrible. Now is the time to reform gun laws. Citizens should not be able to obtain automatic weapons. I don't want to hear a peep from those NRA freaks or the gun loving folks. A major change needs to happen. Now. 20 elementary age kids should not be dead today. This shouldn't happen. We have to do better for those 20 kids and all the people we lose to gun violence daily all over (especially in Chicago & New Orleans). My prayers are with the everyone in Newtown.
