Go hug your kids

I feel really sick about this news:

NEWTOWN, Conn. — A lone gunman killed 26 people at an elementary school here, including 18 children, in a terrifying early Friday morning shooting spree.

The Associated Press and local media reported the shooter, a 24-year-old male identified by CNN as Ryan Lanza, was also dead inside Sandy Hook Elementary School. A second person was in custody and undergoing questioning. At least three weapons were recovered at the scene, including a .223-caliber assault rifle and two semi-automatic handguns.

Mayor Mark Boughton said several victims had been taken to local hospitals.

I feel like every part of me is humming, desperate to pick up my kids, hide in our basement and never come out.

I know I’m not the only parent who feels that way.

I work at a newspaper, and we’ll talk about what’s happening today at 2 p.m. here.

More coverage here and here.
