Like many Americans I'm still in shock about what transpired this past Friday (12/14), after a deadly shooting that occured at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, Connecticut. 20-year-old Adam Lanza, went on a shooting spree killing 27 people including 20 children – before taking his own life.
