Tonight, as I think about my young grandchildren and how precious children are in general, I am sickened with grief to learn of the senseless tragedy of the Connecticut shootings.

No child should ever go through something as terrible as this, and no parent should ever have to wait and wonder if their child will be home tonight, and no family should ever have to mourn the sudden loss of a young child.

My heart goes out and fervent prayers are going up for the victims, survivors and their families as they make their way through the days ahead.
