Pray for the famalies.
20 children, 6 adults, and the murdering scum dead at the school. Possibly 1 more adult victim at another location.
Hold these families of the deceased close in your thoughts and prayers.
Please also remember everyone who responded to this. This will haunt them for a very very long time.
This is not a political statement. I believe in the 2nd Amendment.
But the sad fact is that for people without means, it is much easier to access firearms than it is the mental health system.
I hope this changes with the idea that these types of events become fewer.
They always have to have the upper hand. If the odds were even, less people would be killed or injured.
I know these responders were affected, I hope they get the help they need if they choose to accept it. I was first in on a workplace shooting here last month, it was ugly.
Thoughts and prayers for the families, friends, colleagues and emergency responders that were/are involved in this terrible tragedy. We lift-up the town and its members in prayer.
Tonight the screaming, yelling, messes and day-to-day stuff my kids do don't seem such a big deal..... We tucked them in extra tight, kissed them on the forehead and prayed together as a family. We're using this as a time to reflect and remind us what is truly important and precious to us.
My condolences to all those affected by the tragedy. I remember what it was like when I was in elementary school and how simple life was. Kids of that age should not have to worry about some nutcase with a gun going in and shooting everyone.
This is apparently a note that one of the children who died wrote at the school while the shooting was going on:
As a parent, an American, and as a human being, I offer my sincerest condolences to the parents and community of Newtown, CT.
To the rest of you guys, please don't allow this thread to devolve into a political debate over gun control. I know an incident like this can conjure strong feelings one way or the other. But create a separate thread for that discussion.
Lastly, I call b.s. on that letter.
A national tragedy....thoughts and prayers seem so minuscule seem, so insignificant, but may they build the foundation for healing.
There is no debate about gun control, the gun is not the issue. It is the very fact that there is pure evil in this world and this individual manifested it into this horrible event.
In the ashes of this, there is good; the heroism of the average person, when pressed into action is incredible. Enough good cannot be bestowed on these men and woman. If there is hope, there it is.
On a personal note, we need more good people with guns to confront the evil people with guns.
This is why I think that ALL schools should have at least one cop or security guard that is armed. To prevent something like this happening again. Yeah I know you cant put a cop in every school but something needs to change. To many life's are getting took.
I think we can all agree the actions of the teachers that day were absolutely heroic and should be commended as such.
Maybe it's time that some of the school staff be allowed to carry, Well maybe not carry on their person all of the time. Maybe office personal that has weapons in a lock box, or something of the like.
we cant get our cops to shoot straight in some of the busiest cities in the country.....why the f*ck would a teacher be able to handle that situation any better?
