Remebering Sandy Hook Elementary

Source

"Heal the broken heart-ed and bind up their wounds" are the final words President Obama said as he spoke to the nation on the tragic incident in Connecticut where an armed assailant attacked and killed students and staff before taking his own life.

I fear for the welfare of this man's soul, for nothing offends God more than the shedding of innocent blood.

To the parents and loved ones of those who lost family to this ill man in Newtown, no words of comfort will satisfy the confusion and agony of losing a loved one. No religious belief or philosophy can substitute for the comfort of holding a child again as many people will have the opportunity to do save the victims of this tragedy.

The most powerful man in the world arguably, President Obama, shed tears knowing that he will have the privilege of cherishing his daughters while those parents of the little ones snuffed out so early in life will have nothing but the memories of their laughter and images to cherish. It is a terrible act to take a life, but it seems so much more horrid when the life of a child is taken. It is taught by Isaiah, that in the last days the hearts of men will wax cold and shall not take compassion on the young or the babe or the woman with child.

What happened to the heart of this man who took with him to the afterlife innocents? What made his heart so cold that he would take the lives of people who are not even accountable to God for their sins? Why would he shed the blood of the innocent? I fear for the welfare of this man's soul, for nothing offends God more than the shedding of innocent blood.

Please pass this on, and share with everyone. I made this as a way for people to remember the 26 names of those that matter most, not the 1 name the media chooses to exploit.

The hearts of men have waxed cold and care has decreased in the world. Because of this lack of care, a man grew to maturity to perpetuate his careless life into the caring lives of many good people.

The creator of Twin Mormons, a new group of concerned Africans, African Americans and other philanthropists has this to say about why such things may occur though he fully gives no excuse for any reason to murder.

My experiences have taught me that many people who do such things do them from lack of feeling loved. This results in lack of ability to care for others. Yet the void in their hearts lingers and irritates. They see others receiving love all around them yet they feel disregarded, worthless in what they see as an ocean of people loving each other but not them. This constant reminder of their ostracism develops resentment.

Mr. Wight in this post on his public forum has revealed a very telling truth. The hearts of men have waxed cold and care has decreased in the world. Because of this lack of care, a man grew to maturity to perpetuate his careless life into the caring lives of many good people. No tears where shared for him. I fear for his soul as I cry for the children. I do not cry only because they are gone. I cry because their loss reminds me of my own loss--opening up the wounds of losing my own child in tragedy.

During the holiday season as we rush off to celebrate the birth of the Savior, or the cleansing of the Temple and lighting of the candles, or Santa bringing gifts, and bringing a new year, let us cherish each other in love.

Not just in our families should we do this thing. Let us include our neighbors and friends. Let us reach out to those we may have overlooked and show them there is still love enough in the world that they need only reach back to us.

If there is a lonely heart, invite him or her over for a family gathering. Do a kind act remembering all the time that by doing so we could prevent a person from feeling the hatred and loathing that would make him do such terrible crimes.

As unpopular as it may be in today's society, religion is the answer to the problem. In my estimation, the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that there is good in all religions, but I can only endorse Christianity from personal experience.

The shooting was a departure from a connection to God. We connect to God through other people. We have failed to reach one soul, so dozens of lives have been permanently affected. We can do better. We will do better.

In the words of Jesus as attributed to him from the Bible "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John 13:34-35

Let us put all parties aside politically and agree with the president that we need to put a stop to this. The only way I can think of is with the help of God almighty.

I saw nothing about the father, perhaps the one who killed so many blamed his mother for the loss of his dad and like so many younger kids in a family, they seem to feel left out and withdraw. He may have been on drugs as well and like some who fail at their chosen post-high school goals, feel lost and suicidal. This may have been his final act of redemption in his own eyes when he massacres so many and his own mother, then himself. This is only conjecture and perhaps I should not even comment, but this is so terribly upsetting to all of us and the only way we can heal is to talk it out and say our prayers. Thanks for listening,Rodric, your friend, whonu.

It is upsetting. I am almost to the point where I don't want to think about it, but I have to do it. It opened up my wounds, still two years fresh in my mind. I just cried bitterly a few weeks ago remembering my daughter. Now, this! It is so harrrible for the families and espeically the mothers who sent there kids to school today thinking they would be safe there. Oh, my soul agonizes over the horror in the minds of those people!

The mothers crying for their children images is stuck in my mind. I feel the pain so much that it hurts and I cannot breathe! Why did that man have to do that to those people. I believe those people are in a better place, but their families are not. I am so torn over this, in bits!

Another senseless tradgedy. Looking for excuses to kill. What could be in someone's mind to kill little kids.

Evil and loneliness was in his mind. I wonder what he is thinking right now that he finds himself in another place where he cannot kill or take his life further? That is the torment of hell. He actually has to face the life he lived and cannot end it. Thanks for commenting Carol
