A man assaulted 22 children and an elderly woman with a knife at a primary school in Henan, China today, marking the second assault involving young children in one day. What the Hell is going on?

The horrific incident at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut earlier today left 27 dead -- 20 of them children -- and an entire nation in horror. You never expect a tragedy like this until it happens, especially to innocent children. Who would do such a thing to kids? It's even more unbelievable when another assault on a large group of children happens on the same day halfway across the globe.

NYDailyNews.com is reporting that a 36-year old man with a knife assaulted 22 children after slashing an elderly woman at a Central China primary School. Luckily there were no fatalities in the attack, but nine children were hospitalized, 2 of whom were badly injured. The attacker, Min Yingjun, was eventually stopped by security guards and is now in police custody.

Apparently this is the latest in a string of violent attacks on Chinese schools that date back to 2010. One incident that year saw almost 20 fatalities and over 50 injured.

It seems the world just becomes more and more violent and there is almost no place you can feel completely safe. Let these awful acts of violence done by terrible people remind you to always tell your loved ones how much you care for them, because tomorrow any one of us could be taken.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims of today's senseless attacks.
