I can't believe this happened. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those directly affected. Not that everyone hasn't been affected. All the students in my class are still really jumpy when someone walks in late. This tragedy has made me suspicious of strangers. It's just not fair.

This whole tragedy just broke my heart. Any time an innocent person is killed it really is a loss to the whole world. My love to the families and friends of those killed or injured in this senseless act of violence.

I feel terrible for the parents..If any of you is reading this I'm thinking about you all. Take your time, we'll always remember your children, moving on may take the rest of your life, take it one day at a time, you will always miss them everyday (that's a promise), you have to find a way of dealing with this. Life goes on. You have to get on with your life and yes it hard but you have to get out of bed and get on. God bless and I love you.

Bless the victims and their families. I hope they can find a way of dealing with this without being vindictive. I hope they can forgive the gun man and move on nicely.
