Horror beyond horrors. I just cannot believe this has happened & my heart goes out to everyone who was impacted by the tragedy. I don't understand the mind of a person who could do something like this to a crowd of innocent victims. Two of them (at least) being very small children! 6yrs & 4mos old!

And we are promised that unless people start making serious corrections & becoming closer to G-d... the way to "The End" will be incredibly painful for a LOT of people, correct?! But how can it GET much worse than this?! The killing of kids especially!

What can a person do besides pray??
