    I am amazed at the strength and love shown by Grace's family. Hearing her mom and dad speak it is easy to see why Grace was such a wonderful child and why she was all about peace and love. She was sorrounded by a loving and peaceful family, Clearly the best enviroment for a child to flourish.

    I was so impressed with the composure of these brave parents! Thanks for sharing these wonderful profiles of little lives who have made an impression on so many! I would love to have the opportunity to purchase a print or two of the beautiful artwork created by Grace. They are truly Amazing! Any chance to make them available and have the proceeds go to the families! Also, I want to commend you, Anderson, on keeping the focus on those lost and not the one who took them from us!!!

    My heart is so full. I don't know how Anderson can sit with these brave parents, but I'm thankful he is. So we can know and never forget these precious angels. My heart goes out to all of these dear parents, siblings, grandparents and loved ones. I don't think any of us will ever be the same after this. God bless us everyone.

    Amazing strength the parents of Grace have shown. I believe that during the brief time Grace was on this earth, she was the luckiest little girl in the world because she was sourrended by her beautiful family. I will always keep the children and staff of SandyHook in my thoughts and will live my life in a more positive way.

    Thank you so much for your stand on not discussing the name of the shooter at Sandy Hook School. The media as a whole needs to stop making these sick people infamous. The American public does not need to know all of the minutia of his or any other sick perpetrator's lives. It only serves to make some other sick person want to "go one better" and see if they can do something worse. I also commend you for your choice to not interview these young children.
