i live in newtown, connecticut, where the shooting just happened. this picture is of my best friends and i with gracie, who was probably the sweetest little girl on the planet. at the time of this picture she was watching us get our prom pictures taken and wanted to be “just like us”. it was probably the cutest thing i’ve ever seen.
she was at sandy hook elementary school at the time of the shooting and we just found out that she was killed.
i’m honestly still in shock. gracie had such a great life ahead of her. she looked up to my friend melissa (in the purple dress) so so much. i can’t even imagine the amount of pain that her parents are going through right now. to lose your daughter at such a young age to such a mindless tragedy is completely unreal.
i don’t care what religion you practice, get down on your fucking knees and pray right now for everyone who was involved in this shooting. there are no words for how absolutely devastated my hometown is, everyone knows everyone and i don’t know a single person who wasn’t affected in some way.
rest in peace, gracie. i’m so so so sorry and i’m going to miss you so much
