Mount Mercy University stands with the nation in our shock and sadness at the tragedy that unfolded yesterday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Children are some of the most vulnerable in our society, and the teachers who care for them daily cherish the beauty of life and learning. It is therefore especially tragic that these caring and vulnerable ones should perish in this way. We pray for the souls of the departed and for God's mercy and love to be shown now and in the time ahead for the families and loved ones of these victims.
