“GODS LITTLE ANGELS”
Beautiful Precious Angels, that where taken to soon
Like pretty white doves that take off toward the noon
Those precious little angels whose hearts that always made us smile
The joy that they bought will still amaze a crowd
The grief is so hard, that we must call upon God
What hate can a person bring to cause so much intense pain
Our Angels are not gone but just watching us mourn
They knew they were loved and do understand why
They say there ok and please don’t cry
They were full of life, and loved us all
Just rememember their playful songs
They said it’s ok to shed some tears
So momma and daddy will always be kept near
My deepest sympathy goes out to all the parents and adults of this tragedy
May God bless you all.

Doc Thompson had some interesting stats to put this in perspective today. On average, 17 people die from all school shootings in the US including college and gang fights. Meanwhile, 450 people die from falling out of bed! Worldwide, 150 people die from coconuts falling on their heads. Bizarre deaths commonly exceed the Newtown experience.

I feel sorry for the shooter, he'd have to be pretty messed up to take the lives of beautiful young children. He lost his chance to be in heaven where everything is perfect and you always have someone who loves you that you can see. I believe that God was there at the shooting and he is grieved that the shooter was so messed up that he wanted to hurt someone and that he will never be able to welcome that person into heaven, but remember that all those kids are in a much better place now, somewhere where everything is perfect. think about it, right now the are proably playing ball or hide and seek, watching the beautiful lives down below. I greive for the lives but i want to remind you all that God has a plan for us and he will never leave you even if you curse him and use his name in vain. his love for you is unconditional,and never ending. My sympathy to the families of the deseased...........

What you're saying is God watch the psychopath kill these kids and did nothing to stop it. God watches all the psychopaths in this world take away loved ones while his almighty glory does nothing. God took away innocent children from their parents for what reason?
You religious zealots have no answers and simply repeat your brainwashed schooling. Innocent children die and all you fools can say is have faith in God. If God planned to take them away, why did he allow them to be born? Your God is a sadist.
