May their deaths not be in vain as before
with others who have died at the hands of a madman.
May this tragedy inspire the living to change this situation for the better, for everyone
Aspies struggle with few friends, and suffer indignation and isolation for their lack of social skills
Change this, and these poor dead people will be truly honoured
Leave things the same, or exacerbate the situation
And more suffering for all sides will be the outcome

I have made a concerted effort these last days to treat everyone as well as I can.
I have even felt kindness [but firmness] toward my bullies
If we can all do this, it is a step in the right direction

I cried and sobbed tears last night for these poor souls
which I seldom do, only once every few years
may they rest in peace, with our efforts to heal our planet
to sooth their troubled souls
toward peace for all

I am so very sorry for your loss. I know these words alone will never take away the sorrow you must feel. The lost of a love one is always a terrible thing, especially the death of a child. I can only imagine the grief that yo must feel, I wish I could lend you strength to get through these times. Know that your children will always be remembered. :(

I feel absolutely terrible about this. The kids were so young. A mixture of anger and sadness. It sucks that we have so little control over these horrific acts... it is frightening. I can't imagine hurting anyone, especially not someone so young.

A great tragedy for everyone involved.

Dear Sandy Hook families,

I offer my deepest condolences to anyone who lost loved ones or was victimized or traumatized by this tragic event. I'm sure that nothing a stranger says here is going to reduce your pain. But hopefully knowing that people care and are sending loving thoughts your way will help in some small way in the long term healing process. Many blessings to you all.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. May the families find peace.

I am not a parent, but I know that losing a child is the worst tragedy on earth. I cannot imagine how someone could recover from such a loss. Only to perhaps find some comfort that your children may live through you and through your family. That their laughter, smiles, and essence are never forgotten. That society may remember your children and live through them. That society may change, whatever that change may be, so that no one has to ever go through that ever again. Every child should be safe at school and every parent should feel safe to send their children to school. The children and adults who lost their lives are heroes. America is with you. You are in our hearts and prayers.

My girlfriend and I had a baby girl who died very suddenly last year, so I can kind of empathise, although she wasn't murdered in such an horrific manner. There is absolutely no pain worse than losing your child, and all I can do is send my deepest condolences to these poor people. I hope that in time, the pain lessens as mine has.

Those poor, poor people, it's just not fair.

This is just so upsetting. The poor babies are safe now, and cannot be harmed any more. RIP lovelies.
And for the adults? Your bravery was noticed by all. None of you will be forgotten.
To the families, I have to say that I have not felt the pain that you are feeling now. Wise people have told me that time heals all wounds, and I do know that the pain will lessen in time. The victims' legacies live on.
This poem was in an article, and it brought me to tears. I don't know who wrote it, but it's a lovely poem.

The Field Trip
Please don’t cry, we’re okay.
We went on a field trip today.
A secret place where there’s fun to be had.
And the principal’s with us, so we won’t be bad.
It’s full of toys and rainbow slides.
Cotton candy and high cloud rides.
A funny zoo full of different things.
I even saw a man with wings.
We’re not alone so don’t you fear.
We’re chaperoned by Jesus here.
It’s really nice so I think I’ll stay.
And hold your spot til your field trip day.
I know Christmas is here and there’s toys to be given.
So please tell Santa that I’m here in heaven.

I just learned that one of the victims, Dylan Hockley, was autistic, and died in the arms of his aide. I guess this means we are mourning one of our own, too. I never met him, of course, but somehow I feel like I'm connected to all the other autistic people out there, because we share a common experience, common struggles, common joys. When the world is so confusing, big, noisy, messy, and unpredictable, you have to stick together with the people who find it just as overwhelming as you do. It intensifies my feelings of unfairness over all of this. This boy should have had a full life, should have grown up and learned all about the world.
