I am so sorry for everything that happened to your children. When I heard what happened, I wanted to cry. I also wanted Lanza to get caught so he could be in jail, and not make the same mistake again. I think he killed himself because he felt so ashamed, and he didnít want to go to jail for the wrong things he did. There are more bad people out there, but we can catch them. We can stop all this tragedy. I really am angry at Lanza. I feel so sad because he killed his mother and innocent people. I would never do that. When I see my parents suffer, I feel bad. When I see people cry, it makes me feel bad. I want you all to remember that your children need you, and you need to be strong, the strongest you can. I am so sorry.
