    My heart goes to the children who witnessed their classmates being killed but are still alive to heal from the trauma

    “I’m upset that I didn’t graduate. So I’m going to make sure that others never get the chance to.” What a monster. I cannot imagine what these families are feeling.

    My Mom is a teacher and my Dad is a firefighter. I am way more worried about my mom than my dad these days - and there is something very wrong with that.

    I didn't even want to take my daughter to school today. This is sad beyond words. Rest in Peace all the victims and my condolences to the families.

    My condolences to the families, this is so devastating. My heart goes out to the parents and families of the teachers, this is too much. We need to pray against this madness and identify people who are angry and get them mental health before they reach a boiling point!

    Went to summer camp when I was 9, there was horrible tragedy one of the cabins caught fire and it killed one of my friends. I am still traumatized 35 years later. I can only imagine children who go through a mass shooting. This is so heartbreaking. And the parents…ugh smh

    I may not be a parent but I worked 5 years as an educator, some as a school secretary and seeing this turns my stomach. My heart goes out to the families, teachers and the poor little kids who shouldn’t have had this be a part of their childhood. Prayers for their recovery. ❤️

  • Jason Colvin

    To take the life of innocent kids like that is just sick. I mean what can be missing in your soul to PHYSICALLY kill, not only a person, but a child..and not just A child...but 19 children. As a father I can't even wrap my head around this and I give my deepest condolences to the families that have to go through this. God this just breaks my heart.

    This is such sad situation! I cannot even imagine what these parents are going through. R.I.P. to the families, the little kids that lost their lives, and the struggles they are going to have to go through in the future with a loss of their kids! So heartbreaking!

  • Joseph Stanley

    Poor kids, I can’t imagine the fear they must have had, and of course the ones that died. It’s hard to even imagine what there going through

  • ・your non favorite person 👍・

    This is so very heartbreaking! As a mother of a 4 and 6 year old I couldn't even imagine going through this! Prayers go out to the families and rest in peace little angels 🙏

    I feel terrible for the first responders who had to witness this scene. My gosh. I know they see a lot but this must be among the most traumatic one could experience. My heart goes out to the first responders, survivors, parents, teachers and their families. We have to do better as a society. Love one another.

  • captan obvs

    I’m completely speechless….. rest easy little ones and the adults who I’m sure tried to keep them calm. You will be missed by more ppl than you knew and may you live eternally in the heavens.
