Another Tragedy

Another tragedy has struck our Country. On December the 14th of 2012 a young man took the lives of twenty children and seven adults, than he took his own life. All this happened in New Town Connecticut. It happen in a school while the children were attending class. A town where people thought that they were safe. The whole Country was in shock as we saw on TV. how the police came to the school and the parents were running trying to get to their kids. You could see the worry and pain on their faces. The principal and some teachers died trying to save the children. A little girl escape, by playing dead. Her friends didn't have that luck. The children will go straight to heaven. Little Angels they already are. The adults probably followed them. They earned their wings that day. The shooter had killed his mother before he went to that school to commit that horrible crime. He escape the Justice of man here on Earth, but he still faces a higer court and from that no one escapes. How many more tragedies have to happen before things can change. Please say a prayer for the famlies of these victims and ask GOD to help us make this a better world...

    another good entry for the vigil poems. This is the kind of poem to save and show your own children years later and hope that in their lifetime that this kind of thing will be something resolved in our country.

    Very tragic indeed Lucilla! Mankind ails in disturbing ways and the innocent are the ones who bear the brunt of the wicked. You've brought it out well.

    Lucilla, let me wipe the tears away, your poem has expressed the horror of that day so well, the emotion is raw, for sure they are all angels, and the shooter was a very sick young man it seems, according to the news here in Canada, how sad. Constance
