Another Day of Loss for America

| Comments (2)

Tonight Americans will hug their children and loved ones as they pray and weep for those other Americans, who tonight, in the wake of the violent fury of a sick and deranged soul in a small idyllic Connecticut town, no longer have their children, their loved ones, to hug.

I imagine tonight those families in Connecticut who this morning kissed and hugged their children, their loved ones, and wished them a good Friday at school.  And I imagine those families tonight, praying that somehow they will be able to heal, to find peace, to survive, as people they love will never come home again.

I will never forget the stories of heroism or the images that have emerged from this day.  And I will be haunted for the rest of my life by the story of a first-grade teacher at the school, who, upon hearing the first sounds of carnage from a neighboring class, herded her students into a bathroom, her young students crying that they didn’t want to die.  They just wanted it to be Christmas.  God bless them, as well as those who tonight are no longer with us.  God bless all who this tragedy has touched, and may they know that they are are tonight, and many nights to come, in the thoughts and prayers of America.

    And the Progressives, with their ideology of ‘nothing is anybody’s fault’ moral relativism…..blame guns for this unspeakable horror, thereby shifting the blame away from the killer. It’s sickening to see them blame inanimate objects as they wade gleefully through the blood of those precious children to push their Fascist agenda(s).

    Exactly. And now that the “gun debate” is escalating, not one of the politicians or media hacks or Hollywood elitists (all of whom are protected by guards armed to the teeth) will address just how, if they pass laws to disarm law-abiding Americans, they intend to disarm those elements in our society who won’t honor their gun laws — and who salivate at the idea of a population of disarmed law-abiding citizens.
