twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled wit
h such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.
I pray that the parents of these children are able to find solace in whatever they believe.

My mother believed this as a Christian and when my sister died said she was comforted by this fact. This was her truth and still is our truth.

Hey little buddy I would love to do that.
You can never tell what will happen in a few
short months.
It would take two of us to keep up with Shuaw.

Hell no I can't!!! I sold my 20 yr old Camaro to the daughter. Have no fear...I got a 16yr old Firebird with a Vet engine, lol. As nice as it is, we need the husbands truck to pull the condo :) No matter, if the condo doesn't make it, we'll just stay in Motel Hell, lol.

I just read that the shooters Mom was in the process of getting conservatorship over the boy and thinking about having him committed. According to the article she was at her wits end with him. It also mentions that prior to this year she volunteered in the kindergarten classroom at Sandy Hook and the shooter believed she loved the school more than him. They're thinking that's why he targeted that specific classroom first.

Not sure how true any of this is but it sounds like it might be the motive.

It's just not a happy holiday season for anyone, jmo.
How does a small close-knit community go through something like this?
Having to bury just one child due to an accident or illness is bad enough, but this is beyond the scope of horror.
