Dear Heaven, Another School Shooting

  1. It's on the news now. There's been a fatal shooting in an Amish school in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

    There aren't a lot of details right now.

    Those poor families.

    Yes. They haven't released the identity of the shooter yet, either.

    There were 27 students in the school. I don't know how many faculty.

    "Six killed in shooting. 2 children taken to one hospital. Unknown number to another. At least one child in critical condition. Man ordered some students to leave building before shooting".

    From CNN Breaking News.

    This madness is just plain horrifying and scary. I hate reading these stories and I do worry from time to time, about my own babies in their respective schools. HOW can we keep them SAFE????

    Apprently, in Las Vegas police are looking for an armed man who had been lurking around an elementary school.

    HOW CAN ANYONE SHOOT "BABIES"-WHICH IS JUST ABOUT ALL THESE KIDS WERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Definitely not in his right mind. What makes me almost as angry is that that these cowards,after taking innocent lives,they turn around and shoot themselves. Taking their own lives HAS to stem from a life-long inability to take resonsibility for their own actions. My prayers definitely go out to the families and the community.

    What a terrible tragedy for those people of peace. The children who witnessed such event will never be the same.

    The prayers of the whole nation will be focused on them today. I ask that they be surrounded in safety, and love, and the Highest Eternal Light.
