Resources for dealing with tragedy (#newtown)

Statue across from the site of the Oklahoma City bombing
Given the tragedy that occurred this morning in Newtown, Connecticut, where someone with a gun entered an elementary school can killed several people, I have pulled together these resources for dealing with tragedy.
For more information on today's tragedy, please consult your local or national news (U.S.).

@acarvin has suggested this resource from the Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma of wellness resources for journalists covering traumatic events like #newtown. There is also an excellent list of resources on the site on covering such tragic events.
