"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem."

I can't believe the place our world has become. Those tiny innocent souls probably didn't even know what a gun was and what murder meant. May they rest in peace and may God give their families enough strength to be persistent during this sorrowful time.

Things like these have been occurring way too often in the US, time some official stepped forward and tries to work towards anything like this in the future.

This is so heart wrenching..
how can anyone be such an animal.
for god's sake they were just little kids..
hope they rest in peace and it is not easy for their parents, relatives and even their fellow school mates but still i hope they come over this quickly.
I'm worried what effect this will leave on the other kids. i hope they are safe in their dreams too and sleep well.
