Even when I have not been in here for a month and a half,
Even when I have the family around and I can't blog or visit anyone's blog,
Even when it's late and I'm tired and I want to go to bed - crying as I do now,
Even when I'm a Greek in London and USA and Virginia is too far away from me physically and mentally,

I can't ignore what happened and not write about how shocked, sad and speechless I am.

To the young people who lost their lives so soon, may you rest in peace.
To their families: may your pain be less by all the world sharing it.

You wrote a beautiful, eloquent post.

Very nice, Marietta. Sometimes we forget that things like this affect those afar, it does not matter where we live.

That's really beautiful Marietta.
We just have to remember to always speak kindly and love one another.
That boy was tormented, and he just lost it. Yes of course what he did was wrong, but I can surely understand the cause of his breakdown.
I hope lessons were learned all around.
Hate brings conquers all.

Hi Marietta-
SO sorry to hear about your mum!
Poor thing!
I hope she is ok now...
I will say a little prayer for her.
Take care, and hugs to your mum.

Oh've just restored my faith in human kindness and compassion. Thanks for thinking of those innocent lives and voicing it here!

Sorry to hear that violence has touched your life and your mother's life. Hope she recovers quickly.

I've not been reading Rachel or Pete's blogs, but I said on Sue's that your mum wasn't well. I hope she'll be okay.

Hugs and good wishes sent to both of you.
