This is senseless events of random shootings has to stop! These were innocent little children & loving teachers that had nothing to do with this young man. We have to ask ourselves, "How did he get to this point?" Now what do we all do about it, set back & complain or get out & do our part to make our world a safer place. Change happens from one person to the next. I don't have the answers but I do know I will let others know how I feel about making changes. Maybe one person will listen & then another & it goes on & on from there untill enough peopel hear it & act on it.

If we are to have guns out there so easy to purchase, then we need to keep them put up from others & teach our children what is right from wrong, when & how to use guns. talk to them about what to do if you find one. Keep them put away where others don't have such easy access. I don't have the answers, I just know for me, we do not or never will ever have guns at my house.

My children had a hard time sending their kids to school today, I'm not sure I could have if my children were still at home. My daughter ask her son what they did at school if someone came in their school that didn't belong there, which turned out to not be much of anything. He then ask her what she did when she was in school, she had to tell him all they did was tornado & fire drills. He asked her why & she really couldn't answer him. How do you tell a child we didn't have people just going around shooting guns& killing people. It just goes to show how far we are going the wrong way. We took prayers & the pledge out of school, we have taken most forms of disciplines out (just kick them out, it's easier), parents want to be more of a friend instead of telling a child "NO". I'm sure that I will make some people mad after reading this & it's ok, yes we live in a free world & I have my rights to say how I feel just like they do.

So for today my prayers are for everyone out there having to deal with this tragic loss & believe me, we all have in one way or not. You might not have loss someone phyiscally but we all loss that safe feeling, knowing that it could have been you & your family just as easy.

So take a moment to let your loved ones know how you feel & never take a single day for granted. Tell them you love them & thank God for everything you have in your life.

    Such a tragedy and my prayers go out to the parents of these small children and to the teachers trying to protect them. There has been too much of this lately and I think with all the continued media attention, others might see this as a way of getting attention and copycat the situation. I personally feel guns are very dangerous and should be banned except for military personnel and police officers. There are no guns in this household.

    As long as sin is present, evil will happen. It is foolish to believe that it is possible to be "safe" in the world as we know it.
    It is only as we have Faith in the Person and Work of Jesus Christ that there is Hope that one day HE WILL set the world right.

    "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone..."


    It does not, however, negate sadness and loss and tragedy while we are here. It seems that it is part of the journey...

    My daughter is planning to talk to them at my grandson's school this week about what kind of plans they have in place to different things.

    I am deepely saddened for those people, and anyone else who's affected by senseless violence.

    Your views are pretty much the same as what my views are, except we do have guns in the house as the BF is an avid hunter. That being said, they are locked and he has had safety training.

    I am very thankful that he was not able to inflict more violence than he did, he could have done much worse had it not been for the staff at the school.

    My heart aches for the victims in this tragedy. There will never be an answer to the Why.
