My thoughts and prayers go out to the families in Connecticut. You have lost the most precious thing to you in the world…loved ones. This madness must stop. As the parent of a 9 and 6 year old this has hit me hard. I pulled into a parking lot last night after work and cried. I was crying for those who have lost, but I was also crying out of fear and anger for those who could be next. We have the power to curb this. We protect businesses with multiple levels of security, but we leave our schools with minimum security. It makes no sense. The teachers, students and faculty are defenseless. Raise my taxes, ask me for money, let me contribute…secure our schools. We obviously can’t control the guns so lets increase the security. I will pay to prevent this because I will not stand here and watch people pay with the lives of their loved ones. This madness must stop now and we must stop it.
