    David - The title alone makes me shudder. I think this is the last day of funerals and I hope our town will be quiet again for the families although it will be too quiet. The faces of the children and teachers will hang on but not with laughter. You've gotten to the horrible suddenness while the world around that school went on. Your three last lines are so painful. love, Kathy

    Unimaginable suffering. Everyone is devastated, Well written poem. Soon God's kingdom will end all suffering (Revelation 21:3,4). Till then we must pray for each other and console one another.

    David, I can tell that you are having problems with this, problems moving on, as so many of us are. I will keep you in my prayers, that God may heal your aching heart. The whole world had fallen into a painful mourning. Including myself. Merry Christmas to you and yours. hugs, Catie

    On the same day, approx the same time, another madman over in China stabbed 22 children outside of their school, just as they were arriving. Before he went to the school, he entered the home of an elderly woman, and killed her in her home. (does all this sound too familiar?)The horrors are getting the best of me.

    and those poor children in China also, who have had their ears and fingers cut off by some madman. I am horrified at out world today.

    Wow this is a very powerful write my friend! It is so sad what happened in Newtown CT, I can hardly believe that this happened, and to such young, innocent children! I shed tears for their families, the trauma they are going through, and for the other young children that survived and must live with this occurrence! Your poem has been done masterfully, I love your tenderness you used within you piece! I really enjoyed reading this sad toned write, written very perfectly! Great Work!!

    Hi David we cannot imagine no matter how hard we try what they are going through and will do for the rest of their lives.xx

  1. Date: 12/16/2012 10:16:00 AM

    I'm the least of the pain here David I am trying not to dwell on what I can have no impact on or controll over. Hopefully soon there will be some formal way to help the survivors, hopefully a place to donate. Thank you dear for worrying over are you doing? L & L
