I was shocked, too, even though I have no particular connection to Connecticut.

I remember feeling similarly when the Aurora shooting happened. I was born and raised in Denver, which as you may know is right next to Aurora.

I'm very sorry that this has happened.

After posting, I did some reading and saw that this has really shaken a lot of people. Sometimes I listen to BBC radio, last night I was listening to BBC Scotland. The hosts of the program really sounded distraught as they spoke about the events.

I do think the Connecticut shooting resonates at probably a more visceral level, perhaps because so many of the victims were so young.

I will say that there were points yesterday when I cried, perhaps as a result of not turning off the TV and just letting the news go on as it does.

Pierre Corneille,

The age of the children is certainly part of what made it more wrenching for me.
