Our thoughts and prayers are with the community of Newtown, Connecticut.
We were horrified to hear about yet another senseless act of violence that robbed families of their loved ones.
We mourn the loss of the twenty young students, along with the seven adults who devoted themselves to enriching children's lives, even with their last heroic actions.
We stand in solidarity with all those who have lost loved ones in these unspeakable tragedies.
