A man open fired at an elementary school today, killing many children.

I can't stop thinking about this. It hurts my heart to think about the poor children who lost friends because of this mentally sick man, who lost a part of their innocence today. I can't stop thinking about the parents who sent their children off to school and they won't ever get them back.

This is not a matter of gun control, it's just not. Columbine happened 13 years ago and Virginia Tech 5 years ago, but today it seems nothing has changed because a tragedy just the same has occurred again. In my 26 years of life I've seen enough breaking news alerts to know gun control laws only makes it harder for the sane to get access not the insane. The insane somehow always find a way to spread devastation and mayhem. The issue raised from this awful situation is to cure mental health issues lurking beneath our world. TALK to your children, teach them how to cope with their emotions. Most importantly, love the heck out of them. Because, we can't rid the world of all Crazies but we can be proactive to address any emotional distress in our own homes.

To parents of the sweet innocent souls that we lost today, as we hold our children tightly tonight thoughts and prayers for you encompass our minds and hearts.
