Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

17 Dec

By now, I am sure all of you have heard about the tragic shooting that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.  It is hard to fathom that anyone could participate in a mass shooting, much less in an elementary school.  The shooter will not be mentioned here because I strongly believe that his name should be forgotten.  The names that should be remembered are the 26 victims of this horrific incident.  I want to take this time to list each of those victims and say a prayer for their families to bring them comfort and peace as they mourn the loss of their loved one.

Dear Heavenly Father, I ask that you be with the family and friends of these 26 victims.  Please let them know that you are there for them.  Bring them peace and comfort in this time of need.  Lord, I ask that you please be with those children and adults who were at Sandy Hook Elementary that had to witness this terrible incident, fearing for their own lives and the lives of the innocent around them.  Also, please be with the people who responded to the emergency calls in that they witnessed something that no one should ever have to see.  I pray that our nation will reach out to you and learn to know you better so that tragedies like this do not happen again.  Lord, please help dissolve the evil that our world has seen grow so much in recent times.  Thank you for being there for us in times in joy and in sorrow and for all that you do for us.  Amen.

**If you know where I can find a picture of Madeleine or Allison, please let me know and I will update this post.**
