Celebrities take to Twitter after Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting

Twenty six people, including 18 children, are reported dead after a shooting Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Conn.

Celebrities and politicians took to Twitter to express their condolences and sympathy over the tragedy.

Senator Marco Rubio released the following statement to the press:

“My heart breaks for the victims and families impacted by the senseless act of violence today in Newtown, Connecticut. In a world that can at times be defined by its darkness, children are a reminder of what is good, cheerful and beautiful about life. An act of violence against these defenseless young people, as well as the faculty and staff who dedicate themselves daily to educating and caring for them, is a deed of unconscionable evil. I pray that God holds Newtown close tonight as all of her residents come to terms with this tragedy.”
