“I don’t know why he would target an elementary school. I mean, he doesn’t know how to drive, so I don’t really know. I’m totally at a loss for words. He knew my kid had gone to school there. I do not understand it. So I’m at a loss for words. I just watched the news with a text message and started to panic. If she could do that to my grandmother, I don’t know how I would feel about the school thing, knowing my child went to school there. I was shocked that my son and he were so close. I didn’t think much of it when they were talking about school and its grades and lunch. I mean, you wouldn’t assume anyone would do that, you know? “
