From Kallie and Matthew,
This past week has been very stressful, both personally, and I think the rest of the country. For anyone that does not reside in the United States, the massacre in Sandy Hook was catastrophic and certainly has affected the nation. In personal business, Kallie and I, both enrolled in college, are finishing our finals. Between keeping up with the families of the children and college we've both been busy. I feel so bad for the families devastated by the shooting. The children victimised by it are not able get to enjoy the holidays their families planned for them. It is just tragic to think about. As for the gun-control legislation that has sprung from this scenario, I find it tragic that more attention is put on that than the massacre. As for my thoughts on it: I think that there will be no easy answer for gun-control, but one thing is for sure, we live in much too violent a country. Many things need to change. I myself have never owned, or even held a gun, my family doesn't have any; I was always taught pacifism. My absolute sympathy to those affected.
