But, I wanted to jump on here quickly and say that I don't understand how any human could cause such devastation, but in the hours and days to follow please remember than he acted with free will. I've been writing a lot about "blaming" mental illness and I'm going to ask again that people not. This man did something terrible and the whys and what didn't protect the children from this are the questions to answer. His motivation is a lot more important that trying to excuse what he did by throwing out a lot of mental health diagnoses. That will start as soon as his name is released and it is so beyond the point. He murdered many small children and adults and the focus needs to be on how to stop that from ever happening again rather than trying to make it rational when we can't understand what motivates such a thing.
My heart is breaking. Little Miss Anne isn't that far from school and it's impossible to not imagine the child you love in that terrifying situation. Praying for all concerned and for our country. A shooting that has more victims than Littleton and one carried out with small children by someone who probably didn't even know his victims is beyond belief.
