The Connecticut Massacre

As many of you will have heard, there has been a deadly rampage in Newtown, Connecticut, in which 26 people were killed; adults and children. It is believed that, during the shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary, 20 children were killed, and 6 adults including the principal. The gunman, Adam Lanza, was thought to have had a personality disorder which may have been one of the causes of his sudden rampage. Police have questioned his older brother, and his younger brother. Lanza killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, and then drove the the school in her car with three guns which are believed to be owned by his mother and father.

Teachers told children to huddle in corners, hide in cupboards, and even lock themselves in the bathroom, which actually saved many lives. The gunman, after his killings, killed himself outside the school. This is not only one of the most saddening and devastating events I have ever come across, but it is now known as one of the deadliest mass shootings in US History.

I give all of my best wishes and condolences to the families and friends involved, and the police are still working on finding a motive for the massacre.
