This may be inappropriate to post and mods can take down if they feel it is, but I'm compelled to post this:


We are all parents, we all love our children. I live in CT. In a town 2 towns over from me, a 24 year old went into a public elementary school and killed 18 children and 9 adults. No matter what our views on vaccination, I know we all fiercely love our children and make choices that we feel are the best for them. There are some circumstances that are beyond our control, like a senseless tragedy like this. Which makes what we do have control over all that more important and meaningful. Why can't be all just be left to make those choices in peace? Lets try to be be a bit more respectful of one another......Go home tonight and hug your child close. But for the Grace of God Go I......

Bokonon, Taximom5 and kathymuggle like this.

This is devastating. I'm going to cuddle with my children for the rest of the night, and mourn for those who have lost theirs.
