That is the last tweet of Dawn Hochsprung, principal at Sandy Hock School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Yesterday she was setting up books and, no doubt, getting ready for her Grade 4’s Winter concert. This morning, as she sat down with a parent and a psychologist to discuss a Grade 2 student, gunshots rang out in her school’s hallway. She, and the pyschologist ran for the door to confront the danger and look after their kids.
They didn’t return.
20 children also died this morning in the halls and classrooms of the school, including an entire kindergarten class.
