12:13 AM ET 12.23 | The recent massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school has effected every person differently. But it's not just Americans reeling after 26 people were senselessly murdered, in fact one superstar athlete was forced to reflect on being a survivor of a devastating school shooting nearly 17 years ago. When the Sandy Hook shooting happened, I instantly went back to reading about a similar shooting at Dublane Primary school in central Scotland back in 1996. In that shooting, former scout leader Thomas Hamilton entered Dublane Primary and murdered 16 people, most of them children around the age of the Sandy Hook victims. World No. 3 Andy Murray was an 8-year-old student at Dublane Primary when the shooting happened. Murray has been training in Miami recently, and sent his thoughts out all the victims of the tragedy this weekend, while also reflecting on his own experience with tragedy.
