Even after a weekend of trying to focus on finals and work, I still can’t get Friday’s tragic shooting out of my head. As a Connecticut native, from only a town away from the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary I wanted to personally offer my condolences and those from the whole Z!NG team to the families and friends of those affected. Never has a shooting like this hit home so hard and made me realize just how precious life is.
