We’re just learning of the horrific, truly heartbreaking shooting at a school in Nashville earlier today.
Six people; three children. I still have the pictures of the kids at Sandy Hook, the little children there who were shot dead, in mind. Well, six people including three children were shot and killed in their own school. Six people, three children, who won’t be coming home today to their families, to their friends, to their lives.
We are holding in our hearts the families and the loved ones of those affected by this horrible tragedy, and thank the first responders who were on the scene.
