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...
