Nope.

Not according to the Lanza family!

Early yesterday the world thought Ryan Lanza, brother to deceased Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza, broadcasted his thoughts via Facebook.

In the messages, "Ryan" claimed he was actually the victim after losing both his sibling and his mom.

According to surviving members of the Lanza family, however, an impostor made these messages on a fraudulent account.

As you can see from the image (above), the impostor posted from that account:

NRA Breaks Silence On Sandy Hook Elementary School Shootings

Five days after a young man used three high-powered firearms to commit one of of the most heinous acts in American history, the National Rifle Association finally has something to say.

Like most of the world, the NRA is "shocked, saddened and heartbroken" by the senseless tragedies in Newtown, Connecticut.

Unlike most of the world, the powerful gun lobby group apparently has no problem with the ease in which Adam Lanza obtained these instruments of war and brought them to an elementary school.

Sandy Hook Teacher Kaitlin Roig Saved 15 Students, Is A True American Hero!

Filed under: R.I.P.InspirationSad Sad

If not for the quick-thinking and bravery of Kaitlin Roig, there is a very real possibility the unfathomable casualty count at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday could have been even higher.

When the shooting began, the lovely young first-grade teacher quickly ushered her 15 students into the classroom closet and urged them to be quiet.

In an interview chilling enough to make even the most world-weary cynic cry, Diane Sawyer discusses with Kaitlin (above) the unforgettable moments between when Adam Lanza fired his first gunshots and when the police arrived to safely lead her children outside.

This shooting was masterminded by one heinous villain, but, as details from this tragedy slowly come into focus, we're realizing Newtown, Connecticut is a community filled with dozens of astonishing heroes.

We honor the courage and selflessness of those teachers, administrators, first responders, and classmates who helped prevent even more parents from burying their children this week.

Sandy Hook Shooter Adam Lanza's Parents' Divorce Papers Show No Sign Of Mental Health Issues

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

school-shooting-parents-divorce.jpg

While there is no doubt that Adam Lanza, the young man behind the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, was mentally ill, papers secured from his parents' divorce show no indication that anything was wrong… at least not four years ago.

Peter and Nancy Lanza filed for divorce in 2008 and in the documents, Peter agreed to pay Nancy increasing amounts of spousal support each year. In 2010, Peter paid almost $250,000.

But there is nothing in the papers that mentions their son's mental state.

Adam's mother did seem to know something was wrong with her child a year or so before the attack took place, as recent reports claim she talked about her fears at a bar she would occasionally patronize.

We just cannot begin to imagine what would drive someone to orchestrate such a calculated attack on the most innocent of humans.

We only pray that anyone who feels depressed, isolated, numb, angry, — even insane — seek help immediately, before something treatable and manageable turns into something violent.

There are so many tragic tales coming out of Newtown, CT, it's impossible to begin to comprehend them all.

According to close friend Lissa Lovetere Stone, Anthony had just asked Rachel's parents for permission to take their daughter's hand in marriage and he planned to pop the question in several days.

Lissa says Rachel was an exemplary individual, especially in caring for children with special needs. She revealed:
