20 Children Among 26 Dead In Newtown Elementary School Massacre

Gunman Opens Fire Inside Sandy Hook Elementary School Early Friday
NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBSNewYork) –
Twenty children are among 27 people who were killed Friday morning after a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
State Police Lt. Paul Vance said 18 children and 6 adults were pronounced dead at that scene. Two other children later died at the hospital.
Among those dead is the gunman, identified as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, 20-year-old Adam Lanza. He was found dead inside the building from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, sources told CBS 2.
The shooting has become the second-deadliest school shooting in the nation’s history, exceeded only by the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech.
A 28th victim, an adult male, was found dead at a secondary crime scene, Lance said. He would not elaborate on the details.
Lance said the shooting occurred in two different classrooms in one section of the school.
One of the adult victims is Lanza’s mother who was a teacher at the school, sources told CBS 2. Some of the child victims were her students, sources said.
I can’t go on. Rest of tragedy HERE!!

Our Children Paying The Price #Newton #Ct #Shootings
Down in the schoolyard
The lessons come hard
Wonder will they survive
The price they might pay
On any given day
They might not come out alive
But come the morning
Without warning
When she opens her eyes
Her destination
No salvation
Her wretched bitter demise

Tragic. How one can be so souless is beyond me.

It’s hard not to think about the horror these families are dealing with. Maybe collective prayers sent by the world can help……it can’t hurt.
I saw the president speak……and, I may be so hardened against him, but his “tears” did not appear genuine. His manner so often seems contrived. And, there was something he said I can’t actually remember that led me to believe he’ll try to alter the 2nd Amendment.

When we send our children out into this world we never know what evil is lurking out there. We know there are more good than bad in this world but these people who’s lives were taken were totally defenseless. We need to make sure that the government quits blaming legal firearms owners and we should hold the government responsible for making all these gun-free zones available to the bad guys. God Bless the little children and the peacekeepers.

Proverbs 6:16-19
King James Version (KJV)
16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto Him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and HANDS THAT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Genesis 9:6
King James Version (KJV)
Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He man.

There are so many evil people in this world, it is digusting. I will never understand why these sickos do the things they do. Little kids! What could they have possibly done to warrant this? Nothing. nothing at all. And the survivors, parents of the deceased. The little ones who witnessed and survived. I cannot imagine their horror and grief. God help them. God help us.

As clear a case as any of demonic possession. Let us pray for all.

St. Michael, the archangel, defend us in our battle against evil.
As a former kindergarten teacher, as a parent and a grandparent, I cannot even fathom the horror. May God hold them in His arms.

Oh Dear God. I have no words other than to lift up those who are suffering such a monumental loss. Comfort them, please, Father, please.

There are no words for this type of “tragedy”…
“Dear God, I Pray in the Name of, Jesus Christ, to “heal” the broken hearts of those who lost their children and loved ones this day and every day till His Return…Amen!!!”

The sadness in my home all day has been VERY THICK . but I must make one correction the shooter was the younger of the two Lanza boys Andy NOT Ryan. Remember that Ryan lost his mother this day also by the same hand.
