  • CNN reports a shooting has been reported at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut Emergency services are on the scene. Below are the latest updates as they come to us:

[Updated at 11:27 a.m. ET] The Hartford Courant, citing police, said an unspecified number of people had been shot. The nature of their injuries was unclear, the newspaper said. But it cited police in saying one person had "numerous gunshot wounds."

[Updated at 11:19 a.m. ET] Affiliate WTNH says children are being taken to a nearby firehouse.

Mental illness is not caused by poor parenting. For that matter, people with mental illness are not more violent than other people Just sayin'

inds do function better when each is open and do not remain closed, but there are many other emotional and mental qualities which effect the way each one's mind works. Some of the qualities needed are affection, attention, positive reinfircement by encouragement, moral values, supportiveness, involvement, interest, communication skills,  quality time spent with child(ren) doing what the brings a smile to the face of each child, sitting down and watching the television programs, movies and video games played with the child(ren)  Letting the child(ren) know each takes top priority in your heart and life and will always shelter each from the harmful elements of nature and all mankind. Teach the child(ren) to enjoy the many life simplicities and admire the various shades of beauty & purpose each brings. Those who are brought up in negative environment(s) with forms of negative communication, emotion and various neglect(s) are most likely the one(s) who will end up with mental/emotional health issues only to end up doing deplorable acts of violence and unable to love/appreciate     his/her own self. Teach each child to show kindness to all animals including domestic, marine and wildlife. It all starts within the home and family behaviors. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Lord our God and Heavenly Father heal the heart of each parent who has suffered such a great and tragic loss by the deplorable act of another. Come to their aid Lord God, provide for them the courage and strength each needs to face the hours which come with each new day. Heal the void of emptiness which is felt within the area of each parent's womb, may the kindness, love and attentive care be given by family, friends, neighbors and strangers be embraced by the parents. May each parent find comfort in knowing the children are now nestled in arms of Jesus and are protected while sharing the company of the angels. Many heartfelt sympathy and condolences are extended to each parent in sincere and loving ways. God Bless and guide each parent throughout the hours of each new day. This is what I ask in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

I am praying for the families who lost a love one in this senseless selfish act of the shooter. I am praying for the shooter's family.

To hear that it's an ELEMENTARY school with only grades K-4 is even more heartbreaking...and shocking.
