I think many of us have seen and heard about the terrible news at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Connecticut. Please pray with me for the local community around the school, the parents, the children and local authority agents.

Heavenly Father, we can not fully understand the situation which has happened in Newtown, Connecticut. We pray for spirit of calm, comfort and healing upon the town.

Amen :votive1: :votive1:

Adam had been diagnosed with Asperger's, but that has not been associated with violent behavior.

His mother had not been a teacher at the school, but he had attended it.

Peace and healing blessings,

I'm truly horrified by this tragic episode of madness, that is all it can be.

Prayers for everyone who is affected, the families and the children and teachers at the school and any of Adam's family still alive.

And for all those children and teachers killed, for Adam's mother and for Adam ... may they be at peace and rise at home with our Lord.

And for new insights that will stop these awful occurances.


:votive1: :votive1: :votive1:
In the triumph of prayer
Twofold is the spell.
With the folding of hands
There's a spreading of wings
And the soul's lifted up to invisible lands
And ineffable peace .....

We need to bear in mind that this sort of tragedy is unfortunately not new. These massacres happen all over the world but are not in the news for more than a few hours - if that - when they happen outside North America and Europe.
The coverage this one is getting brings home the heartbreak that is felt wherever the murder of children and teachers occurs. School buses are intercepted,classrooms are invaded, buildings are set on fire.Sometimes they are only reported on the World Service and don't hit the headlines over here at all.
Sadly such incidents are often deliberately arranged for political manipulation rather than the work of one madman.
All parents whose children are victims need our prayers. We need to pray that perpetrators come to their sense before they act,wherever they are.

Sixteen of these mass shootings have occurred in the US this year already. What is needed is the fortitude to circumscribe the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. The gun lobby outspends its opponents by 73 to 1. Maybe, just maybe, this horrendous slaughter will bring our lawmakers to their senses, and they will finally do something definitive. A 1994 ban on assault weapons like the one(s) used was allowed to expire in 2004. At the very least it needs to be reinstated immediately. Walmart, our largest wholeseller to the public in the US, sells these weapons in about 1700 of their stores nationwide in the US. One can even buy them online. I hesitate to think about the numbers of these weapons already 'out there.'
Peace, hopefully eventually, and blessings,
Joe :praying:
Peace and blessings,
Joe
