Thankfully I do not know what it is to lose a child or be present at such an occurrence, but having lost a friend under similar circumstances it’s bad enough.

To the friends of those who died, all I can say is try to hold on to the happy memories and any keep-sakes or photos. If it hurts too much to look at them put them somewhere safe where you can find them when you need them – try not to lose them as I have done. Do not feel guilty about the amount of pain you are feeling when you see...

Do not feel guilty about the amount of pain you are feeling when you see someone closer to the deceased hurting or later when they appear to be coping.

Over time you may come to terms with it, some will take longer than others but none will get over it despite appearances. Sometimes even the smallest things can bring back the grief, but it’s events like this that make it worse. I will pray that God gives you strengths, just as he’s given me, since I lost my friend in the Hungerford Tragedy twenty-five years, four months and two days ago.

I cannot imagine, literally, how the families and loved one are feeling and what they are going through with how awful I am still feeling myself from an objective perspective. My heart will not stop hurting. A piece of my heart was taken away and I don't think it will never be restored. I hope the love, support, and prayers from everyone helps the families and loved ones affected by this. I really do. God bless them all.

While we're praying for all those affected by this senseless violence let's also pray for all those children throughout the world who are subject to horrific violence and death. Peace on Earth as we are all God's Children.
