Pray for School Shooting

It is a sad time around the US as many children and teachers had their lives stolen from them. The children were as young as 6 years old. Many of the teachers at the school are heroes. I'm really saddened by everything right now and just wanted to say something here about it.

It is a shame the man responsible can't be held accountable for what he did. Making those people suffer, he should be aloud to suffer here on Earth for his actions. But now he is suffering in another way. But then again, we don't know his relationship with God to say that but I'm sure it helps those involved to believe that. I just don't know.

But I do know one thing for sure. Those families have someone very important with them, helping them get through this ordeal. I don't know why one child or teacher was chosen over another but there was a reason for it. Only God knows why. Maybe he wanted to fill Heaven with their laughter. If anything, it will help knowing they are happy where they are. No more illness, no more pain, no more danger lurking in the shadows. They are watching us mourn with tears in their eyes. They will all see us again and will be rejoined with their parents and siblings, and friends.

Our lives will move on. We will become better people, live in their memories. We will do things in their honor. Lives are changed forever because of one man's actions but we will not (we cannot) let him win. Because then their lives with be for nothing. It will take some time to be better, mourning always takes time. And I pray for all of the families who lost someone at that shooting and I really hope all their hearts will heal. I also hope they don't lose God in this time of need.

As a parent, I know how I would feel if my babies were taken from me like this. I've lost loved ones in my life and I don't think they would compare to how I would feel if something like this would happen. So it tears me apart that other parents have to go through this.

All of you are in my prayers. God loves you!
