Aftermath Photos from the Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting

I have joined my colleagues from The Journal News and from around the country who have been covering this tragedy in Newton, Conn., and try to make sense of the insensible.

I don’t believe I have come back with any answers.

One thing I do know, that when I have met with people, through the course of my career, who have had to deal with such horrible and tragic lost, I always walk away humbled by the strength they exhibit in the midst of such terrible pain. I hope that I can give some dignity to their lost by sharing their voices and pain as widely as possible to anyone who gives a damn.

Good night people and think of those families who won’t be kissing their little ones gone tonight here or in any place around the world where the only solution of the weak to their insanity is found down the barrel of a gun.

Peace
