Breaking News.... another school shooting

Anyone who believes in prayer, now is the time.

Sigh........18 little children and 8 adults were shot to death at an elementary school in Newtown Ct. this morning.

There just are no words to express the sadness and outrage.

I am so sickened and saddened by this. I just read that the shooter's mom is a teacher at the school and many of the victims were apparently her students.

I just simply do not understand what in the world is happening anymore. My God .. what did those children do to deserve what happened to them?

This is just so friggin' sad I can't find the words.

Prayers and comfort going out to all involved - even the shooter's family because they also need comfort.

The season of peace and joy and the festival of lights...crap, ruined for so many. This is just horrible. I want to offer comfort to everyone who needs it right now, but at the moment, I'm still in shock and I'm mad. I'm so freaking mad that someone could be so selfish and cruel. I will get to a better place, but right now I want to kick something.

I have been listening to this horrific story unfold all morning. My heart is sick, I have shed many tears even though I cannot begin to imagine the anguish of these parents. My prayers are offered for some sort of relief from the nightmare they are now experiencing. Peace be with all who are touched by this tragedy.

I just hope the Press has the good sense and decency to leave the parents alone who have lost a child. My heaart aches for every parent. Having lost a child, I know where they are right now and in the future. The last question I would want to answer is, "How are you feeliing right now?"

I wish I could put one for each victim, but I am only allowed so many.

Such a horrible senseless tragedy. I'm so sorry for the family and friends of the victims.

I listened to the President's speech. It has to be one of the best speeches he has ever made. If you can catch it, then listen and watch. He was crying.

And more for the kids.
