Quotes

Mark Barden: Who knows to do this? There's no... There's no way to do this. And we don't want to sweep it under the rug. And at the same time, we don't want to dwell on it. And even with my wife, Jackie, I feel like if I'm having a moment, I don't want to bring that on her if she's having a good moment.

Well done honest portrayal of a preventable tragedy
29 April 2017 | by DerrrrDerpSee all my reviews

Once it's okay to kill babies there will never be changes with who can have a gun in the US. What thoughtful and brave parents, how devastating. Newtown seems like the perfect community which makes for a stark contrast with the horror. The community seems to be healing and doing their best.

Well worth the watch just make sure you have tissue handy!
