On 12/14/2012, President Obama made a national condolence speech on the senseless tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. The massacre left 26 dead, including 20 children and 6 adults. The gunman, Adam Lanza, 20, killed his mother, who is a teacher, in her Newtown home, drove her car to the Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire on innocent children and the staff of the school before turning the gun on himself.
The Sandy Hook Elementary School (K-4), at 12 Dickinson Dr., Sandy Hook, CT in the Newtown School District, has about 626 students. Its current academic ranking by www.greatschools.org is 10 out of 10. Statistically it means the school’s academic performance is in the top 10%, which really means it has a perfect academic performance of 100%. Academic performance does not get any better than that. The tragedy could have happened anywhere there is someone with a deranged, evil mind, and the concomitant means to decimate innocent lives—20 children and 6 adults.
Many across our great country and the world grieve for the innocent lives taken by a soulless murderer.
