In Connecticut a 20 yeard old man named Adam Lanza decided to go to Sandy Hook Elementary and started shooting young kids. Before going to the elementary school, Adam had first killed his mother. As a result from his actions, 20 young kids and 6 adults were killed. The shooting occured on a Friday morning inside the elementary school, and once Adam was done he decided to shoot himself. The guns that he had used were legally purchased and registered to his mother, Nacy Lanza. At first, Adam was mistakenly identified as Ryan Lanza, his older brother, because his identification was found on him. Ryan was questioned by police but they later claimed to believe that he had did not have any involvement in the shooting. Ryan had claimed that he hadn't been in contact with his brother since 2010, and he was later released. The massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary was one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history.

It is obvious that what happened to the kids and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary school is something very bad. Taking away the life from someone is already really bad, but taking away the lives of many young children who have their whole lives ahead of them is completely wrong. I would have never have thought that someone would actually have been able to do something like this. And there is a reason why this massacre is one of the worst to have ever exsisted in the U.S.

To be honest, I cannot say that I enjoyed this article because saying that would mean that I enjoyed what happened to those innocent people. What happened to those people cannot be explained, because I could not imagen young elementary kids getting killed. It's sad that someone was actually able to do something like this. Even though some adults were killed, it is a lot worse for the kids because they literally had their whole lives ahead of them. This massacre is probably the worst thing that can ever happen to a parent. I think that every school should teach its students safety technics like knowing where to hide or to stay calm in case something like this happens again. This is not the first time that something like this happens and it will not be the last, so every school should be prepared because unfortunately their are a lot of psycho people in this world. And if this ever happens again in the future, lets hope that the students are well prepared and that their will be no deaths or injuries.
