I've seen him blame liberals for focusing on the guns. If he's blaming liberals for the shooting itself, he'd be wrong.
Actually What I'm blaming are the liberal policies that leave these twenty something no real world solutions to reality. The 'no one loses' mentality is what is behind most of these things. Children are being raised without the ability to cope with the real world. So where do they turn? Movies and video games. That becomes their reality. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out! How far out there must a person be to turn a gun on a room full of 5 year olds?

Bullshit. We borrow money for less important things...big bird comes to mind.
The murderer in this latest school shooting was the son of a teacher at the school (it was her room he shot up, after killing her first), and also a college graduate from Quinnipac. He certainly had access to mental health facilities/treatment. Sometimes these nuts slip thru the cracks....

A thoughtful post. It is going to get MUCH worse before it gets better, as the last three "generation zeroes" are ammassing...
I've said that this nation will have to brought to its knees before we start looking up to "whence our help comes".

I was thinking more in political and cultural terms.

Never did I think it would happen this way.

And never before in my life have I ever wished to be more wrong.

Strange__it was an elementary school full of five through 11 year old white kids in a very pretty part of Connecticut.

Who would figure that a local twenty something would become so enraged with his own family that he would take it out on other families and by proxy the entire town. He was really pizzed and the only question left is why?

God is great and God is Good,
And we thank God for our food;
By God's hand we must be fed,
Give us Lord, our daily bread. Amen.

Now, before I run to play,
Let me not forget to pray
To God who kept me through the night
And waked me with the morning light.
Help me, Lord, to love thee more
Than I ever loved before,
In my work and in my play
Be thou with me through the day.
Amen.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here;
Watch over me throughout the night,
keep me safe within your sight.

God of Light and Truth,
thank you for giving me
a mind that can know
and a heart that can love.
Help me to keep learning every day of my life,
for all knowledge leads to you.
Let me be aware of your presence
in all things and at all times.
Encourage me when work is difficult
and when I am tempted to give up;
encourage me when my brain seems slow
and the way forward is difficult.
Grant me the grace to put my mind to use
exploring the world you have created,
confident that in you there a wisdom
that is real.
Amen.

I hear no voice, I feel no touch,
I see no glory bright;
But yet I know that God is near,
In darkness as in light.
God watches ever by my side,
And hears my whispered prayer:
A God of love for a little child
Both night and day does care.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep:
May God guard me through the night
And wake me with the morning light.
Amen.

We thank Thee Lord, for happy hearts,
For rain and sunny weather.
We thank Thee, Lord, for this our food,
And that we are together.
