Killing of innocent children can't be explained To the editor: At 89 years of age, this is among the worst unbelievable acts of evil that has happened in my lifetime. I'm a World War II veteran with terrible combat experiences, but this senseless killing of these innocent, beautiful small children just can't be explained and just is so hard to accept. I love our freedom in this country, but we need to look very hard at what can be done to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening again.
