I am still in shock over what has happened in Conneticut today. I can not imagine what would cause someone to kill 20 innocent children. I stopped watching the news coverage on it because my heart could not bear it anymore. I pray for the families affected and cannot imagine ever losing any of my children especially to such a senseless act of violence. It really breaks my heart that instead of celebrating the wonderous Christmas occasion, these families will be mouring the loss of their "angels".
My greatest fear as a paramedic has been responding to a child that is hurt and even worse one that has died. I have been lucky, in 11 years I have only responded to 2 deaths of children. I can not imagine responding to something like this. It would be the end of my career. I send out my prayers to all the responders, law enforcement and medics that have had to deal with this horrendous act.
Everyone hug your children and loved ones just a little tighter tonight and prayer for the families and all responders involved in the incident.
