26 people, including 20 children from 5 to 10 years old, were killed.

Friday, December 15, was a sad day in the United States. Parents’ tears and grievances cannot describe their pain of losing their young kids.

Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut was a stage for a horrific rampage where at least 26 people, including 20 children from 5 to 10 years old, were killed. It is one of the most bloody school shootings in the US.

The gunman killed his mother at home and then went to the school, killing 20 students at a classroom, before shooting five other adults and killing himself. (Read more in this news report).

This massacre was not the first to happen in 2012. Back in date, there are about 5 school shootings occurred in different states throughout this year; the issue that highlights many question marks on why violence in the American school is increasing.

  • Are teens in America suffering from accumulating psychological problems?
  • Are they chained to expressing their identity and needs?
  • Do they have too much access to weapons?
  • Are they desperate in general?

Share your input on what causes school shootings in the US, and send your condolences to the grieving families who lost their little ones.
