Very kind of these kids to want to help the little girl who shot their dad:

The four children of Charles Vacca, the gun instructor who was killed when a nine-year-old girllost control of an uzi at an Arizona gun range last month, released a video message Monday to the unnamed girl.

“We don’t know your name, but we are connected by this tragedy,” Vacca’s 11-year-old son Christopher said in the video, which was released by the family’s legal counsel.

“Our dad would want you to know that you should move forward with your life,” Vacca’s 15-year-old daughter Elizabeth said. “You should not let this define you. You should love yourself – and love your family.”

“Some day we hope that we can meet you, hug you, and tell you that it’s okay,” Christopher said.
