I just hope ryan lanza wakes up his idea.

Don’t try to gain sympathy.

ryan, you are definitely NOT the victim!
the victims are the ones who innocently lost their lives all because of your useless, crazy, mentally ill brother, adam lanza.

Do you know there’s still a long journey for those 20 kids who’d been killed?

Your sick brother had lived for 20 years, at least 2 decades of those kids killed! They only lived for 6-7 years! They didn’t even have the chance to grow up!
Do you get it?!

If there’s a chance for god to repeat this scenario, I am sure your monster brother will never even had the chance to be born!

Honestly, your brother DOESN’T deserve to be respected at all!

The ones who deserved to be respected, are the ones who died in this tragedy!

JUST BECAUSE OF HOW USELESS ADAM IS, WHY DRAG ALL THE OTHERS & DESTROY THEIR LIVES?!

No one knows exactly what was going through the mind of Adam Lanza. The predatory aggression he displayed by executing the children could be a manifestation of the life-long loneliness he endured because of his unfortunate disposition (suffering from a personality disorder/asperger’s syndrome, mental illness and being introverted).
Being alone in this world is a crippling, disempowering feeling and it can do horrible things to people psychologically.

It could have been retribution against his mother for trying to send him to a psychiatric hospital. In his state of mind he could have perceived this as his mother abandoning him and loving the school (Sandy hook elementary) which she volunteered in more than she loved him. Hence why he attacked that school.

Regardless of the motive, now isn’t the time to deride a boy who was clearly afflicted in life, snapped and lost control. We are in no position to judge because we don’t know how we would have responded were we in his circumstances. Some of us may have been stronger and fought of the evil that consumed him that day whilst others may have been weaker.
Hating on Adam Lanza isn’t going to do justice to the beautiful children and staff who died that day. The only way justice can be imparted is if further blood shed is avoided through stricter gun control and awareness(including the retailing/distribution of firearms and domestic handling/storage of them). If anything we should direct our hate to the fact that Adam was another human being who failed to feel safe and secure in this world. We should hate the fact that he had access to firearms (an act of gross negligence on behalf of his mother, god rest her soul) and that mentally ill people, gangsters, drug dealers and criminals continue to have access to firearms. We should hate the fact that he failed to see an alternative, righteous path to follow to overcome his problems.

Above all now is the time more than ever to love one and another. This is the only way we will heal from this great wound that has been inflicted on America and the world even. By loving each other we counteract the evil and pain that was seeded in the garden of time that day, as well as strengthening each other. If only Adam understood that he was indeed loved by his family and god, then this entire nightmare wouldn’t have unfolded.

We need to celebrate the lives of the victims and commemorate their beautiful souls as well as discern what went wrong with Adam Lanza not deriding him in blind, grief-driven anger. We also need to learn to love one and another, especially those who feel alone and afraid.

I also think it was perfectly fine for Ryan to post those messages on facebook, as he is only showing his love for his family. A true family member is one that unconditionally loves his or her family regardless of the circumstances. However why he wasn’t there for his brother when he was clearly unwell is troubling.

I agree with you in that if is perfectly fine for Ryan to post those messages and mourn the loss of his mother and brother. No one could possibly understand what he is experiencing during this very difficult time.

Ryan Lanza has to live with the horrible guilt of what his brother did. I’m sure he’ll have a very hard life because his name will forever be connected to the death of those poor children and teachers. He deserves to grieve in whatever way he needs.

i agreed that Ryan has the rights to mourn, but he should have at least acknowledged what his brother did was wrong. His mother common sense also should have been questioned.

Ryan is a human being. By mourning his mum and Brother, which of course he will, he is not loving the crimes his brother committed. Love doesn’t stop when the one you love does wrong. Leave the family alone to bury their mum and brother. Adam was a human being too. It is all so awful but for God’s sake let them grieve in peace.

How do you know? You don’t even know him or anything about him and what he is going through. He sounds like he is having a normal reaction to the loss of his family.

Because he is mourning his loss? What’s wrong with you? This is NATURAL and quite NORMAL even under these extraordinary circumstances. Stop Judging and diagnosing people you don’t even know.

This was a tragedy for EVERYONE involved, they were all victims, whether it be of themselves or others. Without being able to acknowledge that doesn’t make you a better person and shows you lack empathy. Perhaps you should check yourself before pointing a finger at others.

Ryan deserves to be shown the same respect and allowed to mourn his losses just as much as anyone else.

Incredibly insensitive action on Ryan’s part…if he missed him so much why didn’t he see him in 3 years?…the mother was a complete idiot with 6 militay style guns in the house…the father a complete coward hidding…the world is suffering because two parents couldn’t handle their familial responsibilities…rot in hell Adam and Nancy and Ryan you are an insensitive creep and your dad is a complete coward and fraud.God bless the 26 victims-may they all rest in peace in god’s presence.

I am so glad someone see’s it my way. I was beginning to think I was the insensitive one for having no sympathy for that family. I think the brother is just looking for attention. Hes lucky it wasn’t my child. I have enough anger without one of those precious children being my own. I was upset when the one guy said Adam was one of thier own. I don’t care if it was my own brother I would hate him as much if he was not related.

That picture of Adam Lanza that Ryan posted looks so different from the Adam we saw in all the papers. He actually looks normal with a smile on his face. It seems like aspergers was not his only disability and as he got older his symptoms got worse. Could he have been psychotic which usually begins at the age Adam was.

My heart goes out to Ryan Lanza and if he needs to grieve in public he should be able to. He must be suffering in a bad way. I understand his need to talk about it. He lost his brother and mother and how alone he must feel. Imagine how it must feel to lose someone you love and the way it feels to know your loved one murdered so many people. Maybe he feels he could have prevented it if he and his brother had been in contact and the guilt of leaving the burden all on his mother’s shoulders. Where is the father and why hasn’t the father claimed his son’s body?

I also think that Adam should have been buried with his mother. So I want to say let them both RIP.

RIP? would you actually feel this way if your child was one of the victims? Yes he was sick but he certainly does not deserve to rest in peace. He deserves to be tortured like those innocent children were. His body should be dumped into the ocean not buried. he doesn’t deserve eternal rest.

Its his personal Facebook page. He can post his personal thoughts on there. He is allowed to grieve, publicly or privately. However, if he posted this on some ‘sandy hook victims page” or something, I could understand the backlash. But it wasn’t so get over it

I have mixed feelings because Ryan has the right to mourn, because his mother was killed, and even though he did something absolutely terrible that should never be forgiven, Adam was his brother and Adam was mental so I do not think he would have killed all those poor children and teachers if he was completely sane. But Ryan should not be expressing his grief through social media sites because the people he is mourning for are to blame for numerous deaths.

yes Ryan is a victim in all of this as well, His mother was killed by his own brother two people he loved a lot two people who were a part of his world and who he grew up with. He has to be shattered, people need to leave him be and allow him to grieve. He is also a victim of the media by throwing his pics out there right after the shooting and was taken in custody for questioning in handcuffs!!! There was proof he was at work and had nothing to do with it and all he is getting is shamed!!! This could happen to anyone we know and love so please allow him to deal with his grief and allow him to also have some peace, this has to be a terrible time for him as well. He’s dealing with so much more than most will ever know. He has to always carry this with him.

I sincerely do feel for Ryan, he is a victim, he lost his Mom at the hands of his brother and he lost his brother no matter how close they were and he probably has some guilt over the fact that he had not spoken with his brother in a while, it’s a bad situation all the way around, to lose a child is hell and to lose a parent is hell and to sensless violence is even worst. I pray for him to have peace just as well as the rest of the victims, even the victims parents have said that they are praying for his family it is just a tragic situation.

I feel sympathy for Ryan – but he can not be offended when people speak out about his brother. We may not know why Adam did what he did – but we know he did it and that is enough.

This may sound cruel but the person I hold most responsible is not Adam – it is his mother. She is the one that knew he had issue, she is the one that purchased the weapons and she is one that did not take adequate measures to secure the guns and ammo from Adam. She certainly had the resources to do and did not do it.

The blood of the victims is on her as much as on Adam.

It sounded to me like no matter what if he wanted to get the guns he would of found a way to get them. Just like he got into the school. She was going to have him committed to help him which is what set him off. So she was trying to get him help. And she is not here to defend herself.

@ John N…I totally agree. Someone who you are trying to put in a mental institution should not have access to guns period. She obviously felt this way but still decided to keep an arsenal in her home. She contributed to these kids death as much as her psycho son did. Adam has the right to grieve, but getting upset about people calling his brother names, deal with it. He took his life by choice, he should not have played GOD with those children lives. He deserves to rot below the depths of hell.

What Ryan should be doing is claiming his brothers remains and staying off of social media.If he is really mourning him stay the hell off of the internet and do something more productive like claiming your brothers body and burying or cremating it.His dad seems to not to give a bleep! about it.Get that damn body out of NEW TOWN.

Ryan has a right to mourn for his mother and even his brother who did a horrible thing.Ryan loves them like any of us would love someone in our families who have done horrible things so to say he can’t defend them or is in the wrong for doing so is wrong.I still think that this could have been prevented Adam’s mom ignored the warning signs and she taught this young man how to shoot and also gave him access to these guns so to try to put all the blame on Adam would be wrong he had alot of mental issues and blew up.

Because he knows it would be wrong to claim his body right now and take away from the children’s funerals and the attention they should be getting not giving more attention to Adam and his mom by starting their funerals and then all the media coverage starts on them.

Claiming his brothers remains wouldn’t take anything away from anybody.He could do it secretly and have the funeral home he choose pick up the body.It’s not rocket science.

It’s appropriate that the brother Ryan mourns his mother and his brother, Adam. Even if my brother had committed such a heinous crime, I would still celebrate the good parts of his life. I’m sure that Adam had some good in his heart as well as the evil that over-powered him in the end. What a sad sad tragedy. May all the dead RIP.
