“Today, another American community is reeling from the horror of gun violence, perpetrated against innocent school children.

Our deepest gratitude goes out to the heroic first responders who provided aid and comfort to those in need. As the families and friends of the victims mourn and others wait for word from their loved ones, Americans everywhere share in their shock and grief.
