    25 years ago today :( Along with 9/11 my generation's Kennedy moment-everyone can remember what they were doing when they heard the news

    I remember it very well. Total disbelief in the canteen at work when the news broke.

    Horrific incident. Remember it clearly.
    If the * wanted to kill himself he should have got on with it. To massacre a whole load of primary school kids first was just evil. Having kids that age now myself I can’t begin to imagine how those poor parents must have felt.

    Unfathomable what those families went through and continue to go through. That programme the other night brought me to tears.

    I worked in Tesco in Dunblane whilst at uni. It was the most friendly and welcoming town I think I have experienced.

    RIP

    My mates ex still struggles with PTSD from this
    She was in the classroom and her teacher managed to get her in a cupboard

    Totally shocking day.
    I'd just went home from school when I heard. Tragic

    Remember it clearly. It went from someone at work saying there had been an incident at a school, to pure horror.

    * Bless them.

    I watched that too, the mothers story at the the beginning about her wee girl wanting to go to school that day because she had P. E. was heartbreaking.

    Delivered to the kitchens twice a week and used to sit with the dinner ladies for a cup of tea and a roll n bacon.
    Delivered a couple of days before the shooting and never delivered to there again.

    I remeber picking my son up from school that day. He was the same age as those children who died.
    Just hugged him with tears running down my face when I watched the report on the news.
    Sad Sad day
