 I'm watching the coverage on CNN right now, how horrible.  They are reporting that they found 2 handguns on the scene and that the shooter is dead.  They aren't saying if the shooter was an adult or a child.  They are interviewing a little girl right now who said they didn't know what was going on until they saw the police.  

I can't imagine what the parents are going through right now :(

CNN just reported of one child fatality :( What is going on with the world, children should not be in harm's way at school?

And people wonder why anyone would homeschool? This is absolutely tragic news. My hear goes out to the children and their families.

To hear that it's an ELEMENTARY school with only grades K-4 is even more heartbreaking...and shocking.

I am praying for the families who lost a love one in this senseless selfish act of the shooter. I am praying for the shooter's family.

Lord our God and Heavenly Father heal the heart of each parent who has suffered such a great and tragic loss by the deplorable act of another. Come to their aid Lord God, provide for them the courage and strength each needs to face the hours which come with each new day. Heal the void of emptiness which is felt within the area of each parent's womb, may the kindness, love and attentive care be given by family, friends, neighbors and strangers be embraced by the parents. May each parent find comfort in knowing the children are now nestled in arms of Jesus and are protected while sharing the company of the angels. Many heartfelt sympathy and condolences are extended to each parent in sincere and loving ways. God Bless and guide each parent throughout the hours of each new day. This is what I ask in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
