1. Oh, my dear Aristus...

This is really perfect.

You have captured the horror, the loss, the grief, the stunning irreversible loss of that horrible day. And of course, the quote just really brings it all into focus.

I was holding it in until I got to the candles; then I lost it. All those innocent lives, gone.



Thank you!

13. A very appropriate sentiment

For a very grave wound.

Humanity should be about love, not hate, peace, not war, and life, not death. To embrace the good is to embrace our better selves.

16. You know, I feel bad for the kids being led away by a police officer

Their faces are clear - thought I have seen one instances where their faces were fogged.

Every time they will see this photo they will relive the nightmare.
