We lost a child many years ago to SIDS and it was devastating but the loss of a child by mindless violence is something incomprehensible.
At the time of our baby's death, a stranger sent me a letter of condolence with the poem written by Edgar Guest "To All Parents," I hope you can publish it so that it may bring some comfort to those who have lost children in this terrible event.

"I'll lend you for a little time, a child of mine, He said. For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he is dead. It may be six or seven years, twenty-two or three. But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me? He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief, You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return. But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn. I've looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life's lane, I have selected you. Now will you give him all of your love, nor think the labor vain, Nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again? I fancied that I heard them say, Dear Lord, thy will be done. For all the joy thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may, And for the happiness we've known, we'll ever grateful stay. But shall the angels call for him much sooner than we planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand."

My thought and prayers go out to all the people who were killed or families of the kids who were shot and everyone that is related to all these people.
It was so bad for this guy to have a gun.
Now its time to heal and be as happy as you can at this time. I know its very hard. Peace be with all who is part of this horrible crime

Who ever judged my comment your wrong.
I feel there is nothing wrong with what said.
Since these kids were killed a lot of people are saying they want to kill more people then were killed. Who ever did this your nuts. Not me.
