Adam Lanza’s mother was a victim, too

IN REFERENCE to nearly every news report and newspaper article about the Newtown massacre, I want to remind everyone that there were more than 26 people killed. I understand why the shooter Adam Lanza’s suicide is rarely mentioned, but his mother was the first person he killed.

As a mother myself, I am amazed that her death is rarely mentioned. Their family will be grieving the death of two family members, and bearing the weight of what Lanza did.
