By now we have all heard the news about the horrific events in Conn. yesterday.  I still am in tears every time I think about it.  It is not my mothers heart(although that does not help with the emotions) it is HAVING  a heart.  I feel I have to get this out of my soul and here is the best place, so I am sorry if you are offended by my views.

What kind of sick(yes that is the best word I can come up with I am too mad) person sees a little kid and wants to inflict pain?!  I don't cared what kind of issues he had, I am sure more will come out in the next few days.  If you want to hurt someone so badly, hurt yourself.  Do not take someone innocent down with you.  This is not a gun control issue!  As it was pointed out by a few people the last few shootings in America, the guns were obtained legally.  If we ban guns, then what about the attacks on preschools in China last year that were done with knife.  Will we ban knifes next.  What about Timothy McVay, he used a moving truck and fertilizer.  Will those be the next on the list?  We need to teach our kids what to do if this does happen.  Be a proactive parent and try to protect and control what you can.

We need to turn back to God! 
"Oh Lord,
Hear our cries and see our wounded hearts.
God, have mercy on our country and its people.
I pray to you Oh Lord, for comfort and healing and strength. I lift up every mother and father whose child was taken from them today. I lift up every husband, wife, mother, father, sister, brother, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend and neighbor who lost their loved one today. Help us grieve. I lift up these prayers in the name of Jesus." Candace Cameron Bure, facebook

I was one of those Moms who was anxiously waiting for the school bus to bring my babies home.  As soon as every single kid came in my house they received a hug and kiss like no other.  I am fortunate that I can be a mother who had my kids come home to me.  I can not and do not want to imagine what these poor families are going through.  Instead of watching their children's eyes on Christmas opening presents, they are planning what casket their baby will be buried in.  We don't want to realize that something like this can happen, especially in small communities.  The size of our community has nothing to do with it.  This horrible stuff can happen anywhere and we need to not take stuff for granted!  Every morning we need to realize we have been blessed with yet another day on this earth.

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.' To this day, especially in times of 'disaster,' I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world."
- Mister Rogers

Obviously I see a lot of the helpers first hand.  Yesterday there were amazing helpers.  Teachers who were hiding the children to save them.  They ran back to classrooms and locked themselves and the children in bathrooms to hide them.  They could have ran and left them to fend for themselves.  They didn't.  The Law Enforcement/SWAT who ran in knowing there was a very good chance they could be next on this psycho's list.  All they saw was little kids and others who needed help.  This is what they are trained to do.  The EMS who witnessed the horrific scene and had to stay calm so they could do the best to help them.  The pastors who have to help the parents understand why their child was taken from this earthly home and are now at home with their Father.  We need to see these people and thank them and realize that there is good in this world.  Days and years will pass and this will become more of a memory, but for all of these brave souls, all of these little kids and helpers this will forever be a nightmare in their heads. They all need continued prayers to help them understand this.

I said it before when a young girl died in a car accident last month, I will say it again...
