Today, Congressman Mike Michaud issued the following statement after learning of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut:
"There are so many victims, and too many of them are young, innocent children. It's hard to even comprehend how something like this could take place. Words cannot begin to express the shock and sadness felt by those directly impacted by this tragedy or the sympathy that all of us feel for those who lost so much today. I know I join all Mainers in sending my thoughts and prayers to the families, friends, and schoolmates of the victims and the entire community that was so drastically impacted by this heinous act."
