During that moment of silence, could you fully take in the horror of what happened to the innocents that day? Or did you concentrate on the healing that needs to follow?

This national tragedy has brought out heart-wrenching emotions.

I was working, as I heard the church bells I cried. God keep their souls at peace.

I was riveted by the bells and the pictures of the victims. I thought how sad it was that the kids would never grow up. I thought of all the living my own now-grown children have done since the age of 6 and felt a lot of gratitude that no killer took their lives. But my heart broke and the tears came for the families of those kids. What a tragic loss for all of them.
