Poem for Sandy Hook victims

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 with 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."

Here are the 6 least violent nations. Research and tell me how many of them have God in school?

What a racist list! There are six nations listed that have practically no black citizens. Obviously this is an underhanded attempt to blame blacks for a lot of violence in this world. Why are there no African nations listed?

God bless you for sharing this. I know these children seen several minutes of horrible torment and I couldn't imagine their fear but what warms my heart is knowing that these children as soon as their life was taken that very instant they entered into Gods heaven where there is no more pain or never again a scary moment. I know this don't take away the parents pain or the nations pain but thank God they are now in Jesus's arms where there will be nothing but happiness for them forever more.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of those babies. This is an awesome poem. I had just posted this to my fb wall. Thanks for sharing. Bless your heart!

Very nice poem, thank you for sharing.
The news is now reporting that Adam Lanza's schoolmates said he had worshipped the devil.
This shows quite clearly how the lack of God in the school lead to this tragedy.

This is lovely and reassuring, can you write it to include the teachers that saved other children that could have fallen victim to this incidence. Thank you for coming up with this in such a short time.

Little Sandy Hook
"Little Sandy Hook"
Look at the lives that it took
20 children dying
Left us here crying.
A chain of memories
Blowing in the wind
Letting go all the hopes
We had for them.
It's beyond crazy
Who could kill innocent little babies?
Trying to wrap my mind around it.
I guess we all pay the cost to live in this hell we're in
When God decides to take a loss and lets the devil win
I know it don't sound sweet but my heart is heavy
See my mind's blind to peace but my heart is ready.
Now tell me, do you feel me?
No you don't!
The world's insane
Don't ever change
And it won't!
A tragic decision of murder-suicide
I gasp when I envision all those that could have died
Where I reside we shed tears and bought mad flowers to remember
What happened on that day back in December.(Remember....)

I agree with you. Our country is going down the tubes because we turned our backs on God and morality. People have utterly lost touch with what it means to be a proud American. Just look at how this country voted in the last election and you will see that Americans no longer stand for values, personal responsibility, or doing what's right. Instead, Americans today would rather vote themselves gifts and take the easy way out.
We don't even believe in the family unit anymore. Single moms like Nancy Lanza think they can raise a kid all by themselves without having Dad in the home. Well great job, Nancy! This is exactly the reason why young people today have no responsibility, respect or discipline. Instead of proper parenting, children are allowed to spend all day playing video games and watching DVDs.
These people in Connecticut created Adam Lanza. His teachers, his single mother, his peers, all these people created Adam Lanza. Our society creates people like Adam Lanza everyday, the world is full of them. And if they don't have guns already they will obtain them soon enough. And it doesn't really matter what gun control laws are on the books, because gun control doesn't stop the bad guys from obtaining weapons. The question you need to ask yourself is, do you want to be defensless and unarmed like the people at Sandy Hook? Or do you want to be prepared, do you want to be able to protect your family? The people at this school are all dead because the only person with a gun was Adam Lanza. They brought this on themselves.

Single moms are often single because they choose to rid their homes of abusive, drug addicted, lazy husbands, so the SINGLE MOMS could raise their children in safety and teach them how to stand up to abuse and bullying. So before you blame single moms, remember for every single MOM there is a single DAD somewhere who didn't give a f to stay in the picture, straighten his own dumb a$$ up, and help raise the kids. If the kid of every single mom went on a psychotic spree, there wouldn't be anybody left, because most moms are single, in fact or by the greater responsibility the bear in child rearing.

Thanks for reminding me that God has taken His children home again away from evil and harm. Very Comforting

To all those disputing each others beliefs this is not the place to do so. Very disrespectful. Sorry I had to say it...children and innocent people died in a very hateful way can we not as human beings feel that and appreciate the comfort others are trying to give.

Don't be led around by the media in choosing which deaths are "tragic". We are killing innocent children almost daily with drone strikes through out the world. In Chicago nearly one hundred under aged children were murdered in 2012 and cities all over this country have similar problems. In short deaths are only declared "tragic" by the media when it serves their political agenda and can be manipulated to serve to change what they don't like about our societal system. They can fool all the people some of the time but they can lead fools like sheep to slaughter anytime.
