Every school shooting I've ever heard about has been exceedingly heartbreaking and has stirred feelings of both rage and sorrow in me. Each one is tragic and awful, and there have been far too many of them in recent years.
But Friday's massacre in Newtown has affected me in a profoundly personal way, as I have a unique perspective on the town ... I am blessed to have grown up there.

On their first wedding anniversary, actress Jenna von Oy told her husband, Dell computer data consultant Brad Bratcher, that they were expecting their first child – but it was the couple's pug Bruiser who was the first to know the big news.
"I found out I was pregnant and I was bursting at the seams," says von Oy, who is due to give birth to her daughter in June. "It wasn't fair to tell anybody before I told my husband, so I was like, 'Hey, Bruiser, guess what?'"
Von Oy, who has three pugs, a basset hound and a corgi/Shar-Pei/golden retriever mix, says that the dogs have been very responsive to her pregnancy.
