    Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes

    In grief and love, from Canada.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Husband and wife iReporters Lisa and Julian were so devastated by the news from Newtown, Connecticut, they both sat down and cried in their Canadian home. "What else would your reaction be?" asked Lisa. "It doesn't matter where you were, anyone who heard it had to take a moment to sit down, it's horrible."
    - sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer

    My husband and I, like countless others, have been forever affected by the tragic loss of lives in Newtown, Ct. There really are no words to describe the senselessness of such a crime. We can only express how very sorry we feel for the families and friends of the victims of this atrocity. Regardless of how far away we live from this tragedy, we feel profoundly heartsick and confused by it. Although we continue to shed many tears, we feel compelled to learn about each of the victims so we can experience, however briefly, the light and joy that these precious people held within them. And to recognize what a terrible loss the world, as a whole, has suffered. We grieve for you.
