Unhappy Shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, CT


Please pray for those who were victims and those who survived this heinous act. Most of the victims were children.

Great Spirit,
Protect our children.
Keep them safe from harm.
And those who would do them harm.
Our children are our future.
They carry all that we are
And all that we will be.
We, their Elders are often limited
In our abilities to protect
Their gentle hearts,
Their innocence,
So, we ask for your help.
We also ask that you comfort those
Who have lost their children today.
No parent should suffer this pain, this insurmountable loss.
Nothing, not one thing, not one person can cure the grief when one loses a child, an innocent.
We ask that you not allow us to wander far from this knowing, this understanding of the pain that any one of us can feel from one beat of our heart to the next.
While some of us can breathe a sigh of relief because it was not our child who was harmed today, let us not ever forget that we do not know what lies ahead.
Do not ever allow us to count our blessings by looking at the unfortunate circumstances of our sister or our brother.
Great Spirit, please hear my prayer.
Mitakuya Oyason.

Aho!

The new keeps getting worse. Its now being said that he grew up in Newtown and that he killed his own parents. The most shocking part of this latest development is that his mother who was a teacher at the school

Heart Connecticut School Shooting

Here's just one link, from ABC, regarding the shooting:

http://abcnews.go.com/US/twenty-chil...ry?id=17973836

I just heard about this, about an hour ago, and just really don't have the words to express myself. Some of that is from the shock and some of it is from the tears streaming down my face. Those beautiful little ones.... gone.

Oh my dear Lord, I am having tremendous difficulty trying to understand the need for this. They were BABIES!!!!!

This has to stop
It just has to stop




Yes, it's broken.



I put a icon on this thread, as my little way to start the healing.

Truly awful news.

You don't have to be a parent to have sympathy for the families and the greater school community, but only a parent can look into their child's happy face today and be thankful evil passed them by today..

I wish most that the shooter had taken his own life first and therefore spared the others..

Default Re: Shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, CT

My daughter posted this poem on her FB wall and read it to me, beforehand.

Speechless.



I hope this poetry offers some sort of comfort to some aching hearts:



This morning I woke up,
looked at the Connecticut sky.
I had a good feeling
I can't tell you why.

I kissed Mommy goodbye,
and told Daddy I love you.
And before we separated at the sign,
I told sister see you soon.

The bell rung,
we all rushed inside.
It was warm and loving
like a campfire light.

The teacher smiled,
my friends waved hello.
We started class,
but before you know..

The door busted open,
a man with a gun.
I was scared and broken
I looked at the sun.

The same sun I saw
with so much love.
Now brought me worry
but I'd stay tough.

I felt a pain
go through my whole body.
I saw a light
and an awful goodbye.

I saw Mommy's face,
her beautiful, soft lips.
I kissed her this morning,
she was something I'd miss.

I smelled Daddy's cologne,
when he hugged me today.
He left for work,
not knowing what life would take.

Sister was only a few blocks away,
in a classroom, I could see
I'll never get to say
how much she means to me.

My 6th birthday was coming soon,
I was dreaming of ponies
dolls
and shoes.

Then I felt a hand
touch my face.
I was overwhelmed
in an amazing grace.

God said to me,
"don't be worry, child.
you've been here before.
it's just been a while."

I looked on my back,
where I found wings.
I felt a halo
and clouds under my feet.

With me, when I looked,
were my friends by my side.
That man sent us here,
but I"m alright.

Maybe he was sick,
maybe he was crazy.
Maybe he hurt us
because he was hurting, maybe?

I watch the tears
all over the country.
Over the few years
their pain because of me.

I watched my family
break apart.
but they knew
I was in their hearts.

I don't know much,
but I know this;
my mommy should've never
had to bury her own kid.

Although it's tough,
although it's hard
I think God would want us to forgive
th killer in our hearts.

What you dont know,
but what I'll tell you,
is I'm just fine.
in this heaven of mine.

Maybe this will teach you
to never regret a thing.
Be happy with what God gave you,
because you could've been me.

Now, maybe I was young,
maybe I didn't deserve it.
But maybe I taught a lesson,
now please...learn it.

Love with everything,
always smile a lot.
Remember this lesson,
that I taught.

Wipe the tears,
enjoy the years.
Time goes by fast,
you don't know which day is your last.

Pray for my famlily,
for my friend's family, too.
I'm sure they'll be grateful,
and thankful to you.

I'm an angel,
all brand new.
I came up here
this afternoon.

I would be 6 years old,
but God has a plan.
Remember this feeling of distraught,
remember this lesson that I taught.

I wish he had been taken alive, so he could be interrogated. It seems all these nutjobs die before that can happen.

I just wish that if they are compelled to do this that they would reverse the "kill order" and start with

themselves

I made a copy of this and took it to Church tonight. We hung several copies of it in the Atrium.
