    Not to be insensitive, but I don't know why they single out the deaths of children. Three people died; these people were equal in value and had families. Singling out the eight-year-old simply puts more emphasis on his importance and that family's loss, which I don't think is fair to the other two who died and their families. They're suffering just as much. I find it undermines the value of adult lives.

    This is horrible, though. I saw the images throughout this topic. My tummy lurched. I don't know what the point in doing something like this is! and I don't know what "national importance" today may have, as Scarf mentioned... I'm from Canada, so I'm not up-to-date with important days in America, other than, say, July 4th and 9/11.

    My heart goes out to all those families who have lost someone today, and to all those individuals and their families who have injured kin. This was supposed to be a positive event. It's really sick.
