Statement of Madison Mayor Paul Soglin on Connecticut School Shooting

December 14, 2012

It is difficult to express the sorrow and pain surrounding the news of today's tragedy. The unimaginable happened to kind, ordinary people, many of them children, sending fear into the hearts of loving families all over the world, including our own.

For those who died there is no tomorrow to experience the richness of life. For their families, every tomorrow is filled with pain and grief.

Let us remember that too many children die every day from anger and brutality.

Every child matters; every adult matters.

Let us turn to building safe schools, safe homes, and safe neighborhoods.
