To the Editor:
We just returned from a trip off the mainland and hadn't seen any news the past two weeks, so when Sam, my husband, turned on the TV early this morning we were really shocked and heartsick to hear of the Connecticut child slaying.
It is beyond being able to describe the anguish and sadness to the families and also others who hurt for them, and can't do anything to alleviate this grief for them.
How to help prevent this from happening over and over in this country – it isn't gun control.
