Quote of the day: Remembering a teacher and a daughter

The family of Victoria Soto, a first-grade teacher whom [the shooter at Sandy Hook elementary] shot and killed as she tried to keep her students out of the line of fire, released a statement noting that there were some questions that could never be answered.
“While others search for the answer as to why this happened, we search for the how. How can we live without Vicki?” the statement read.
“So, yes, we have read the report. No, we cannot make sense of why it happened. We don’t know if anyone ever will. We don’t know if we will ever be whole again. We don’t know if we will go a day without pain. We don’t know if anything will ever make sense again.”
